The strategy of the project is based on the promotion of the improvement of the condition of children in Samburu County, Kenya, through a close collaboration with Missione Calcutta onlus, leader of the project, Caritas and the Diocese of Maralal, owner of all the works carried out and results achieved within the intervention.
The project aims to enhance the childcare services of the Consolata Suguta Primary School, in Samburu County, Kenya. The structure, owned by the Diocese of Maralal, welcomes over 600 students at risk of domestic violence, child labor, dangerous traditional practices, early school leaving.
The school, identified as a priority by Caritas of Maralal, a project partner, integrates educational services with a program to protect girls and girls victims of violence, and with a food security program.
What we will do
To enhance these services, taking into account the health context that the country is experiencing, the action includes infrastructure modernization works in line with international standards.
Specifically, we will realize/restructure:
10 classrooms for 2 school blocks
1 water system and 5 tanks for constant water supply
Maintenance and completion of 15 toilets, 13 hand washing stations.
Distribution of school furniture, educational material, Teaching Learning Material.
The school also benefits from actions to combat Covid-19 at the educational/information and hygienic-sanitary level, integrating these principles into a food safety plan, considering the repercussions of the pandemic on pupils.
The project provides the expansion of the School Farm through poultry and dairy cow farming and training and information sessions on proper nutrition and diversification of food aimed at students and teachers.
The intervention acts at the same time on the strengthening of teachers’ capacities in terms of Psychosocial support and gender violence (GBV), and on the awareness of families and communities with respect to the importance of education and school attendance of children.
