The donation by a Non-Governmental Organisation operating in Ting’anga  “The Giving Exchange” (TGE) was presented to the school heads in a ceremony held at Gicoho primary school in the sub-county yesterday.

The NGO executive Mrs. Reah Nderitu while presenting the water tanks expressed the need for other well-wishers in the community to come to the aid of the learning institutions so that they are able to fight the virus when schools reopen in January.

She revealed that her initial intention was to supply Gicoco primary school alone but when she was approached by other stakeholders in education in the sub-county, she saw the need to assist all the other schools. “This is because majority of the children from our children’s home,the Shining Star Home come to this school and the population is 650 which is important that they get more water points,” noted Mrs. Nderitu.
