Thanks to you, Growing Community Roots raised $35,000 for our 2022 Rarua Integrated Primary School Project in Kenya! Thank you for helping keep children in school, improve their health, learn to protect their environment, and fulfill their human potential – impacting the lives of more than 500 – a community of students, teachers, staff, and parents.



Rarua Integrated Primary School is located in Kamuga Sub-location, Koyugi location, in Rachuonyo North sub County and Homabay County. The school occupies 7 acres of land. It is a public school with a population of 196 boys and 163 girls. The school has 4 female teachers and 4 male teachers supported by the Government, one teacher supported by the County Government and 3 teachers supported by the community. The population around the school is 32 homesteads hosting around 160 people. 


The school does not have a permanent source of water. The water used in school is from a pond one kilometer away. This is also the pond for the nearby community members who also use it to water their animals. During this time of COVID19 the children fetch water early in the morning to fill up the hand wash container before they settle for class work. The school does have a small water tank with a capacity of 3,600lts. This water is available during the rainy season and is preserved for drinking. The school only has two toilet blocks – three-door boys block and three-door girls block with a changing room. 


The total investment will include funding one- eight toilets and a bathrooms for girls, one-eight toilets and a bathroom for boys, a roof water catchment systems with four – 10,000 liter tanks including gutters, piping, installation and transportation, two washing stations, garden fencing and two litter free plaques – a total investment of $35,000.
