Narok Water Project


The government through the Central Rift Valley Water Works Development Agency (CRVWWDA) has rolled out a Ksh.4 million water project in Kishemolouk secondary and primary school in Narok West Sub County.

The learners can now breathe a sigh as it has been a long-term suffering which saw the community members request help from the organization’s Corporate Services General Manager (GM) Douglas Mulei.

Mr. Mulei said the solar-powered borehole, has a capacity to produce 3 cubic meters of water per day, which he said is enough to serve the population of 800 pupils in the school. Also in the package was a 10, 000-liter water tank.

Lonah Nkuwah, a director at the CRVWWDA representing Narok County said the water was a big relief to the wildlife-dominated community.

She observed that the pupils walk long distances going to look for the essential commodity exposing them to a lot of danger.

The project will benefit the girl child, she said, who suffered a great deal during the days she received her monthly period because there was not enough water for bathing and cleaning her clothes.

Judy Karwarwa, Kishemolouk Primary School headteacher noted that the water project was a game-changer that will boost learning in the school.

She reviewed that due to water shortage, the learners went to fetch water in the river, which is about two kilometers away, thrice per day hence wasting the classroom hours.

The headmistress said the availability of water in the school will boost the school population and concentration in class and give an overall good performance.

Ms. Nayari Kotik, a parent who lauded the water project in the school, confessed that water was a big challenge in the school that made many pupils, especially the girls, skip school for many days.
