127 Boys Benefited
The school is located in Koguta Sub-location, Kanam “A” location, West Karachuonyo Division. It was established in 1997 with pupils in the lower classes learning under trees. The school first sat for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education in 2003 and has continued to grow both in population and academic performance.
The school has an enrolment of 297 pupils (138 boys and 159 girls). It has 11 teachers and two support staff. The Head teacher is Isaiah C. Ogwang.
SIGNIFICANT NEED IDENTIFIED
The school is 2km away from the nearest source of water, Lake Victoria. It has one 5,000lt tank that holds water during the rainy season. In the dry part of the year, the pupils have to fetch water from the lake and this takes away part of their study time. Quite a number of girls in the upper classes also opt to stay at home when they have their monthly period because there’s not enough water in school and no place to have a wash.
