The Kenyan Government has rightfully imposed strict restrictions on schools reopening.
Legally before our school opens we need:
Thermometer guns, re-usable facemasks for 500 children plus teachers, 300 litres of disinfectant per term, 500 litres of sanitiser for the term, additional hand washing facilities, additional bins for classrooms and additional school desks so the children can space out more!
Every individual child matters at World in Need
From the start of the Corona virus pandemic we've been ensuring that every child and every adult under our care has received additional support.
Our teams on the ground in Kenya have been involved with feeding programs in partnership with the Red Cross.
They have been educating the children as to the dangers of coronavirus and even though they are not at school, the team have been watching after the children's welfare as best as possible. Some even looking after the children for weeks.
Now we need to get them back to school, the classrooms are cramped and we have a duty of care to provide a safe environment for them to continue their studies in.
