After the successful completion of a primary school in Damang (Ghana) in 2018, Fihumin has now built nine classrooms for Kilema Primary School in Kenya.
Kilema Primary School is one of the oldest schools in the Makueni district. It is located in a very dry area, with an average rainfall of just 300 mm per year. Because the children are partly taught in buildings classified as unsound, they urgently need new classrooms. The team from Fihumin has long been involved in the extremely poor education situation in Africa. By building new schools, Fihumin wants to help children in Africa to be given access to a solid basic education.
The children receive teaching material there and learn to read and write in child-oriented lessons. In addition, the water supply and sanitary infrastructure have been expanded in order to provide amenities such as safe drinking water for the children. The children will be taught important hygiene rules, which will protect them from diseases. They can take these rules back to their families and establish them there.
The classrooms financed by Fihumin were planned together with the German Welthungerhilfe aid organisation and realised with the involvement of the local population. The management board and the entire Fihumin team are very pleased about the successful realisation of this sustainable project and will continue their commitment to Africa.
