Current projects / Starting work on Mikira's well

The 500 pupils at Mikiria School are commonly hit by waterborne diseases like diarrhea, cholera, bilharzia and typhoid.

The performance based on the national examinations is below average. This is because of high level of poverty, child labor on the farms and sporadic outbreaks of cholera and other stomach diseases. The school still has high potential to perform better if the teacher pupil contact time is increased and utilized.

A lot of learning hours are wasted by absenteeism and having to fetch water from river Nyando about 3km away, as well as shallow unprotected hand-dug wells within the area whose water quality is questionable and dries up on continued drought.

The school enrollment is expected to shoot significantly when clean improved water solution is available. The school is not a preferred choice to many due to poor sanitation in the school.

There number of household in the school surrounding is at 213 based on the recent survey done by the national government and data copied to the local administration office. The direct beneficiaries from these household are about 1,000 people.
