Latrines for King'ii Primary School in West Kenya

World Centric + Global Partners for Development

$11,600.00 from profits from fiscal year 2019

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.

The Impact

  • 4 separate latrine blocks (8 toilets and 3 urinals) for teachers, preschoolers, boys, and girls.
  • 4 hand-washing stations

Indirect results:

  • School will remain open
  • Attendance will increase
  • Improved health from access to sanitation
