Renovatie van de Orinde middelbare school 2018

De Orinde middelbare school is een school in de Homa Bay provincie. Op de school zitten ongeveer 400 leerlingen, zowel jongens als meisjes. De Keniaanse overheid steunt deze middelbare scholen, echter maar voor een zeer klein percentage van de totale kosten, ongeveer 10%. Door deze situatie zijn vele middelbare scholen in Kenia in zeer slechte conditie, waarbij het onderhoud van de scholen grotendeels op het bord van de ouders van de leerlingen komt.

De Orinde middelbare school bestaat uit zeer verouderde klaslokalen. Ook zijn de klaslokalen veel te klein voor de stijgende populatie aan leerlingen. De school kan om deze redenen geen goed en veilig leerklimaat voor de leerlingen aanbieden.

Het totale budget bedraagt 38,603 €. Een volledig overzicht is hier te vinden.

0.01: Background

The Matata Nursing Hospital started its operations in 1992 as a small Community Health Outreach Programme.  It is located in Oyugis Town Rachuonyo South District, Homa-Bay County-Kenya; which has approximate population of 260,000 (2009, Government of Kenya census). The hospital employs 110 people composed of medical doctors, nurses, clinicians, technicians, clerks, casuals and the management. It was registered as a hospital by the Ministry of Health in 1992.

The hospital has 200 bed capacity providing comprehensive health services to the communities from Homa Bay and neighboring counties.



Orinde Secondary School Renovation Development

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.

0.03: The purposes of Kenyan secondary education system:

Apart from the examinations which are important, the secondary school education in Kenya serves the following purposes:
a.  Social cohesion.
Kenya has over 40 tribes each with its own culture and language. Thus through history, the secondary education tries to create love, unity and patriotism among all students. This leads to promotion of peace generally and respect to international countries. This is why Kenyans are very welcoming people.

b. Career building.
From Primary school to secondary school, students get introduced to more subjects like computer studies, arts, crafts, music, business studies, physics, and chemistry e.t.c and from this, the students are able to choose the subjects they are more interested in according to their future careers.

c. Forster Innovation.
Secondary education introduces students to science symposiums and projects where students develop innovative projects and researches.

d. Promote moral and religious values.
Kenya has different religions but the most taught religious studies in Kenya are Christianity, Islam and Hindi. Through these studies, students get to understand moral obligations and religious values which the Kenyan society expects.

e. National development.
This is fostered through social, economic and industrial focused topics.
Through Social, the students are prepared for a rapidly changing economy on how to socialize with other people, making presentations, public speaking etc.

Economically, students are equipped with the right skills and knowledge to help them contribute positively towards the development of the nation.

g. Talent formation.
Through different sports, students are able to express fully their talents through inter school sports competitions. The best sportsmen and women are often picked to the national squad for the various sports to compete globally.

h. Environmental Awareness.
Through Biology and Geography, students learn about the environment and the importance of taking care of the environment. This helps the students become good environment care takers.
