This project is part of Bridge Water Project's program in Western Kenya. What follows is direct from them:
BACKGROUND OF THE PROJECT
The proposed Eshiandukusi Primary/community school water project rehab is located in Eshianda Village, Bukura Location, Emuhaya Sub-location of Kakamega Central District. The school was started by The Church of God to cater for the educational needs of the local children and eradicate illiteracy. The well of the school is a drilled done by kefinco and installed with nira pump.
CURRENT WATER SOURCE
The school and community currently draws water from a stream which is 2km away.
The breakdown of the population is as follows:
Boys 330, Girls 420
Subordinate staff 2
Community 50 households with approx. 5 people each
(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 the school is good. The classrooms are washed three days a week while the latrines are washed daily. There are no hand washing points present. There also are utensil racks, latrines, bathrooms and clothe lines in the community homesteads.
If rehabilitated, the well will benefit the entire Eshiandukusi primary school and the Eshianda community as a whole
The school currently has a water committee that is currently dormant but will be strengthened before the implementation of the project.
