History: While primary education is free in Kenya, the government is reluctant to invest in educational institutions in marginalized, rural areas. In 2008, WLC built a water project in Nanyuki that provides water for 3 villages, enabling girls to stay in school full days instead of walking long distances to fetch water. One of the schools was in desperate need of new latrines and classrooms and we were also able to provide these new structures as well.
The project: Provided water to 263 families in 3 villages. Built 8 new classrooms, 10 pit latrines and a perimeter fence to keep the children safe.

We work directly with the communities to build the schools.
