Health and Water Foundation, Kenya

Many children miss out on education in primary schools in Kisii District in NyanzaProvince, especially girls.  This is because the schools have poor hygiene and sanitation facilities which deter girls from attending.  In addition the classrooms are in such poor condition they get flooded in the rainy season . Funds are needed to enable Health and Water Foundation (HWF) to repair and rebuild classrooms, provide clean water, sanitation facilities (including separate toilets for boy and girls) and hygiene education.  This will radically improve school attendance (particularly among the girls) and give the children a real chance to make their way in the world instead of facing a life of street begging and poverty.
