Community Profile

This project is part of Bridge Water Project’s program in Western Kenya. What follows is direct from them:

PROPOSED PROJECT

The Proposed Shinamwinyuli Primary School Water Project Rehab is a hand dug well which was done by KEFINCO in the year 1985. The well was fitted a pump. The pump served and got spoilt and eventually and could not be repaired since the Indian Mark II spare parts are not available locally. Since then, the pupils have had to go back and get water from an unprotected Mukasa stream. The Teachers and the Board have expressed their wish of rehabilitating the well by installing an Affridev pump so as to help them access quality and safe water for their domestic use.

CURRENT WATER SOURCE

The pupils get water from Mukasa spring which is 2k away and dry up during the dry spells and the water is not protected.

POPULATION

The School has a population of 1305 pupils. 638 Boys and 670 Girls. 22 Teachers and 3 support staff. (Editor’s Note: While this many people may have access on any given day, realistically a single water source can only support a population of 350-500 people.  To learn more, click here.)

HYGIENE AND SANITATION

The hygiene and sanitation of this school is good since   latrines are cleaned daily and they have a compost pit.  There are two hand washing points at the school and this shows appositive sign of Hygiene.

PROJECT BENEFICIARIES

If the project is rehabilitated it will benefit the pupils and community members around.

ASSESSING THE NEED

The Bridge Water Project has assessed and seen that there’s need to rehabilitate the well so that the pupils can have access to clean water for their domestic use.  The community also needs a hygiene and sanitation workshop to help them improve on their hygiene and sanitation.

WATER COMMITTEE

Bridge Water Project will ensure that the existing water committee is strengthened before the full implementation of the project.

We are excited to announce that work has begun to rehabilitate a broken well at Shinamwinyuli Primary School in Kenya.  The well, originally constructed in 1985, will once again be a dependable source of safe, clean water for the school and community.  We just posted an initial report from our partner in the field including information about the community, GPS coordinates, and a few pictures of the site.  We’ll keep you posted as the work progresses.

Project Type

Well rehabilitation is one of the most cost effective ways to bring clean, safe water to a community.  Sometimes it involves fixing a broken hand pump, other times it means sealing a hand dug well to prevent it from being contaminated.  These repairs, and often time total replacements, coupled with sanitation and hygiene training make a huge impact in communities.
