Urgent need for new sanitary rooms in St. Johns Koru Primary School

This is the ‘toilet’ the six-year-old students of the St. John's Koru Primary School are using at the moment. Shockingly, this is also the same toilet the six-year-old Janvier has used during her time at the school, several years ago. The situation is not only inhumane and disastrous, but also dangerous for the young students. What seems already unimaginable for many European citizens, toilets without doors is just the smallest problem at the Primary School. Toilets have no doors, doors are not able to be closed and the amount of toilets is by far insufficient, with currently only 9 toilets for 900 students. Even worse, lately, one of the toilets has sunk. Blessing in disguise, it collapsed during the night so that no one was harmed at the moment. But the hole is still open and children can fall into it, which is still a substantial hazard. When Janvier and John visited the school in February 2022, they were shocked. And their will to fulfil their mission of providing a safe educational setting for students became strengthened: ShillohCare wants to build new, safe and sustainable toilets for the school. Two blocks are planned, with each having seven toilets for the students and two for the teachers. After having contacted many construction companies, the founders are concerned with the balance between costs and quality. The founders want to provide the students and the school with toilets that are safe, reliable and qualitative enough to last long-term. But these important and necessary standards are costly to build in Kenya - Therefore we need YOUR help.
