"Cat, Mat, Sat"

Description

Kamama (center) and classmates are learning English vocabulary at their primary school in Kenya.

“We aim to develop the whole child through literacy, numeracy, health, and moral education,” says teacher Korio John. 

The school, Sengelel Primary School in West Pokot County, Kenya, benefits from the Mtelo water system provided by World Vision. The gravity-fed water system supplies clean water to about 800 households as well as schools, churches, and a health center.

World Vision built latrines and organized WASH clubs for the primary students to learn about sanitation and hygiene. "Enrollment has increased from 200 students to 500 since the water system was completed in 2015," says Korio John.

“Water has made the difference in the stability and growth of the school,” he says.

Millions of children in Africa miss school because they have to carry water for their families instead. Others have to carry water to school every day, because their schools lack running water and toilets.
