Completed : MURINDU HIGHWAY PRIMARY SCHOOL – 4 New Classrooms

About the Project

Murindu Highway Primary was a new partner with A Better World in Nakuru County in 2023, when ABW built four new classrooms and a kitchen for the school. There are many further needs at the school. Another four new classrooms, completely finished with painting and blackboards, will accommodate some growth as the school takes on the junior secondary level, and will continue to replace some of the wooden and iron-sheet structures. New classrooms will provide cleaner and more effective learning environment where teachers can do their work more effectively and students can better focus on learning.

Some classrooms are still sheathed in worn panelling or gapped boards, with dirt floors.

The iron-sheet buildings need to be replaced with new classrooms.
