On Monday July 18th Mutwan Engineering began constructing the special needs unit toilet block at Noonkopir Township Primary School, Kitengla, Kenya after two and a half years of planning and fundraising.
Mutwan have begun laying the foundations by excavating trenches 600mm deep, levelling floor base of the trench, and cutting steel rods for footing and base settings. The site has been fenced off from the school children to align with child protection measures.
A team of nine are on site to execute the project over 22 weeks. The toilet block will provide appropriate sanitary facilities for 40 children with special needs – the only ambulant toilet block in the township. This project is led by Mama Respond International in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Embakasi and Applecross Rotary Club.
This week Mutwan will progress to the foundation stonework so Global Precast Panels can commence the administrative block.
