Joy as Murang’a deaf school gets new toilet facilities

12 March 2015, 08:49 Nechesa Chemoi

Murang’a – Airtel commissioned new toilet facilities at Murang’a School for the Deaf, with an aim of improving learning environment for students.    

The new ablution block for boys and girls is expected to improve the environmental and hygienic conditions in the school that would promote the pursuit of academic excellence among students.

The school headmistress Charity Ngugi noted that before the construction of the new toilet facilities, students would share the only 2 toilets that were available at the school, which led to a lot of time wastage and exposed the students to a lot of health risks.


“We are grateful to Airtel for stepping in and addressing our sanitation need in this school. This is a huge boost that now creates a conducive learning environment for children in the community, enabling them to succeed in life.  I would like to urge the students to ensure that the new toilet facilities are adequately maintained,” said Charity.

Airtel Kenya CEO Adil El Youssefi stated that addressing social needs and developing the community in which Airtel operates remains an important expectation of the communities associated with the company.        

“A good learning environment is one that offers basic facilities such as water and sanitation. Quality education can only be attained in an environment where the students are comfortable. We believe that the new toilet facilities will go a long way in improving the health and wellbeing of the students at the school allowing them to learn better and impact positive change in the community,” said El Youssefi.
