Construction of Makina Self Help School – Kibera

Date 1st October 2012 – 31st February 2013

Netwas has been contracted to construct a school facility in Kibera.  There are approx 2.5 million slum dwellers in about 200 settlements in Nairobi representing 60% of the Nairobi population,

occupying just 6% of the land. Kibera houses almost 1 Million of these people. Kibera is the biggest slum in Africa and one of the biggest in the world.

We have been supporting various activities in the area including, construction of school blocks, construction of latrines, construction of kitchens, installation of water tanks for Rain Water Harvesting and also the School Feeding Programme. As part of these efforts, Makina Self Help School, in Kibera is one of the schools selected to be scaled up with more sustainable structures. Through Netwas International the school has received a grant to construct new premises. The construction will include construction of class room blocks, construction of administration block, and construction of ablution block and relocation of water tanks. The project is expected to end in 31st February 2013.

From this initiative around 500 school-going children will have a suitable and encouraging environment to study. This will definitely have a positive impact on their learning and hence change their lives for every. Educating a child is educating a generation.
