“We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty”. Mother Teresa

Phase One Projects
Siala Primary School

Assessment and Problem Identification

Siala Primary school is located in rural South Western Kenya in Migori County, Rongo Sub-County, Kabuoro Sub-Location. The school currently employs 19 teachers and administrative personnel for a total student population of 400. It is estimated that 50% of Migori County’s population includes children below 15 years of age. The Migori County Integrated Development Plan 2013-2017 outlines four target areas on the county agenda geared towards: Socioeconomic empowerment, infrastructural development, affirmative action, and environmental management. Specifically, the agenda spells out the need for food security, education and training, recreational facilities and medical care for this population. These target goals are also aligned with the global United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

A comprehensive needs assessment was conducted in Kabuoro Sub-Location in Rongo Sub-County between December 2015 and August 2016. A thorough review of documents, dialogue and interactions with key community stakeholders and field assessments revealed priority issues for development in Rongo sub-county. Under the leadership of the area Chief, key stakeholders resolved to donate several acres of land for development
