Ndiveni Primary School Students' Empowerment Project

Year: 2017
Country: Tanzania
Project Investment: $2,873.50
Project Status: Funded
Sector: Health

Project Launch: 3-30-17

Ndiveni Primary School is home to 250 students. The school lacks access to running water and its kitchen facilities are not developed, forcing students to cook their lunches over open flame on the grounds in the common area. This creates an elevated risk of communicable disease and the contamination of food and water. In addition, the faculty restroom is near collapse, creating further strain on the remaining available hygiene and sanitation facilities. This project calls for the development of a water supply system, enclosing the school's kitchen facilities, and the renovation of the damaged faculty restroom. This will allow the school to reduce its vulnerability to infectious diseases.

Project Update: 8-15-17

The teacher's restroom has been completed. All ten teachers at the school now have access to a sanitary, safe restroom with a completed cesspit. The old, crumbling restroom is no longer in use. The new kitchen has been completed and the improved cookstoves are currently under construction, to be completed next week. The 251 students at the school will be able to use a safe, sanitary kitchen space located on the immediate school grounds. The base of the water tank is completed and the water tank will be hooked up to a water line in the coming days. This will serve the 261 individuals -- students and teachers -- who attend the school on a daily basis by providing regular access to water. It will no longer be necessary for troops of students to regularly gather water from the village irrigation canals.
