My girl child was not attending classes due to lack of sanitary facilities at the school. I am hopeful she will be able to attend classes and continue her education when the borehole and sanitary facilities are constructed.

The teachers and administrators at Kang’oma Primary School approached our partner, Global Hope Mobilization, with the borehole and latrine project proposal. They wished to increase school attendance by improving the infrastructure and facilities. This is the first project Global Hope Mobilization has conducted with a school partner. 

Global Hope Mobilization has also partnered with Kang'oma in an effort to educate the population about disease prevention and treatment by conucting monthly community health talks. They cover subjects like family planning, malaria prevention, sanitation & hygiene, HIV prevention and treatment, maternal health, and nutrition for children under five. 

The women of Kang'oma are also benefiting from the partnership between Vibrant Village and Global Hope Mobilization. The establishment of women's groups seeks promote economic self-sufficiency for women through a self-help group approach.
