PROPOSED CONSTRUCTION OF SANITATION AND HYGIENE FACILITIES AT LEBOLOS SECONDARY SCHOOL.
Community: Lebolos Secondary School, Lebolos, Baringo County
Project: Sanitation and Hygiene
Travel Date: 29-30/7/2018
The sanitation facilities at Lebolos Secondary School are insufficient. The existing boys and girls latrines are very close to each other compromising privacy majorly for the girls. The teachers also do not have sufficient toilets. LSS approached EWB Kenya for assistance for the construction of the girls’ ablution block.
The Lebolos Secondary is located in Lebolos, Koibatek Sub-County, Baringo County in the Rift Valley Region of Kenya.
Latitude: 0° 1’27.28″S
The proposed site can be accessed from Nairobi – Nakuru Road (A104) and branch off to the right at Nakuru to Ravine Road (B4). Before reaching Eldama Ravine, you branch off at Kabimoi and travel a murram road 10km to the school as shown in Figure 1. The area is hilly, and with rock outcrops.
The school is owned by the AIC church and was developed from the Lebolos Primary School (Figure 2). It has four classrooms, staffroom, kitchen, laboratory and unfinished library.
Project Description and Existing Infrastructure
The goal of the project is to provide latrines for the girls away from the boys’ latrines. The project will also rehabilitate the existing boys’ latrines and provide hygiene facilities which are missing.
