Safaricom donates infrastructure worth Ksh 21M to Turkana schools

Over 1,000 learners in Turkana County have benefitted from classrooms, books, desks and chairs donated by Safaricom Foundation.

Among the schools are Katiko Primary School which got 5 new classrooms and Jeriman Lokitaung which received 2 classrooms.

Nariding Nursery School and Katongun Mission Station each had one classroom constructed and furnished.

Lolobo, Lokutumo and Loreamatet Primary Schools each had one classroom constructed and furnished under the Accelerated Learning Programme (ALP), a literacy and numeracy programme being implemented by Safaricom Foundation and Zizi Afrique Foundation.

Nakiria Primary School also had a library constructed under the ALP Programme.

“Safaricom Foundation intervened in these schools to support pupils access a conducive environment for learning as most were learning under trees and makeshift structures. We are also looking to improve the literacy levels of children in this county through the Accelerated Learning Programme we are implementing with Zizi Afrique Foundation. We believe that education is one of the ways to transform lives, “said Joe Ogutu, Chairman, Safaricom Foundation.
