King'ii Primary School in West Kenya has no operational latrines (toilets) for students and teachers. As a result, the school is in danger of being closed.
Access to adequate sanitation facilities are directly related to health and education outcomes. An evaluation of a previous GPFD WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) project found that students at the treatment school were 40% points less likely to have experienced diarrhea and 24% more likely to spend one additional hour on homework per night than control school students. Global Partners for Development (GPFD) will build latrines for students and teachers at King'ii Primary School, benefitting 369 children and 10 teachers.
4 separate latrine blocks (8 toilets and 3 urinals) for teachers, preschoolers, boys, and girls.
4 hand-washing stations
School will remain open
Attendance will increase
Improved health from access to sanitation
