Build 10 toilets for the Primary School.
- Our Work
Kiprengwe Primary School is a rural school located at the top of a hill in the Kedowa region near Kericho, just outside the country’s tea-growing region. Founded in 1978, it was the second-largest school in the district in 2013 with 643 primary students and 132 preschoolers. Despite the large population, the government hires only nine teachers at Kiprengwe, with parents hiring three more plus two ECD staff. Although the primary school has 16 classrooms, four are incomplete and others are used for storage and staff. The school also has a hand-dug, 25-foot well. The government promised to bring electricity to the school in 2014.
ABW started assisting Kiprengwe in 2009 with the construction of three new classrooms to replace wooden structures with dirt floors. Since then, we have built three more primary classrooms and two preschool classrooms, as well as completed two classrooms and office/storage space that were started by parents. ABW also built toilets for the preschool and installed a rainwater collection and storage system. In 2013, in cooperation with KONA bikes, ABW provided 200 bicycles that are lent through the year to students in Grades 6 to 8.
