Ringa Girls Secondary School is a public boarding boarding school that serves 639 young girls in the Kasipul Constituency of Western Kenya. The school was founded in 2003 and has 25 teachers. The school lacked an adequate number of dorms, latrines, and washing rooms (for bathing). The girls were housed in three dorms containing over 200 girls per dorm, and they had started using triple decker bunk beds due to lack of space. The washing rooms often had long lines and didn’t properly drain.
GPFD partnered with the school and community to build a new dorm that would house 120 girls, a two-door latrine (toilet), a block for teachers, and two ablution blocks. One of the ablution blocks includes four doors of latrines plus tubs for doing laundry and the other is four latrine doors plus four washrooms for bathing. We have also included pad disposal bins for all the latrines and have trained school authorities on how to safely dispose of them.
