ORINDE SECONDARY SCHOOL RENOVATION PROJECT 2018

Orinde Secondary School is one of the emerging Mixed Secondary Schools upgraded from primary school. The school is located in Kojwach Location-Kabondo/kabondo Constituency, Homa Bay County. It has 400 students and running Secondary Education programs (Forms 1-4).

Though the government of Kenya supports some percentage (10%) of students’ maintenance, the support does not cover infrastructures development. The situation has left several Secondary schools in very poor infrastructural status, and therefore the responsibility is on the parents and local communities.

Currently the school has some old classrooms used while it was in the primary stage and no proper administrative block. With the increasing student’s population, it means the four available classrooms are no longer able hold 400 students comfortably. The classes are congested and therefore not healthy for learning environment.

KWOYO KAURA PRIMARY SCHOOL AND SIANY COMMUNITY SHALLOW WELL PROJECT 2018

Siany Community is a clan within Kochia West Location, Kochia Division, Rangwe Sub-county in Homa Bay County and has approximate population of 1090 people. The area is flat with black cotton soil, and many times waterlogged. The area has no any river and is highly water deficit. The closes water source is the Lake Victoria which is about three kilometers away and is ever contaminated. The area appears to be very vulnerable to related water bone diseases. This is due to its Topography: flat, waterlogged with poor drainage system.

However, the community still uses the water source. Those who are economically able have roof catchment, but the majority poor(90%) has only the lake. Within the community is the Kwoyo Kaura Primary School with about 521 (classes 1-8) and 112(Early Childhood Education/Nursery) pupils. The proposed shallow well will therefore support the general community and the school community.

NYAWAWA PRIMARY SCHOOL COMMUNITY & SHALLOW WELL 2018

Nyawawa Community is a clan within Gem Division, Rangwe Sub-county in Homa Bay County and has approximate population of 871 people. The area can be considered as safe-clean water deficit since it has no any piped water system nearby, neither is there any protected springs.

The rivers available are always polluted and therefore not most suitable for domestic use. However, the communities use these rivers to supply their domestic water needs, It therefore means the area is vulnerable to water related infections. Within the community is the Nyawawa Primary School with about 330 pupils.

On successful implementation of the shallow well water project, the following outcomes are expected:

  • Reduced water related infections amongst those who would be using water source
  • Increased productivity hours, where especially women and girls will be spending most of their time in looking livelihood activities and in classes respectively. Girls will no longer be going far away in fetching for water from river taking much of their study times.
  • Improved school academic performance, more so for girls who are ever sent to fetch for water.
  • General improved community health, hygiene and wellbeing as they would be using clean safe water from the developed water well.

Baby melkpowder project for 2018

The impact of nutritional milk supply has greatly been realized in relations to improved quality of health for babies who have been consistently supported with milk and the increase in the demand for the MCH/FP/PMCTC services at of recent.

Several mothers come from far and wide to attend the Matata MCH/FP clinics whereas they leave some facilities closure to them. The impression it creates is that our services have value addition; milk supply to improve on the livelihood of the vulnerable and malnourished children.

We expect an improved number of clients by at least 5% as in the year 2017, in view of the fact that public Health services has considerably declined in quality and accessibility. The decline in the public health services has put pressure in the Matata Hospital resources because the most of the clients now turn to Matata. This is one major reason for the 5% increase in both clients’ flow and number of tins required for the year 2018.
