Emurutoto Primary School was started in 1973 to cater for children in the Masai Mara Conservation Area. The school is a large catchment area for children who do not board at the school but walk an average of 12km to and from school daily. Currently there are 2 ablution toilets at the school with 4 cubicles per ablution. Children often spend most of their break time in queues to use the toilet. With an enrolment of 640 girls and 606 boys, each of the girl’s ablution cubicles caters for an average of 160 children and each of the boy’s cubicle caters for an average of 152 children per day.
Children at Emurutoto Primary Schools lack access to proper toilets, putting them at risk of diarrhea and other infections and forcing some to miss lessons altogether. Africa Foundation are currently fundraising for the construction of 2 additional Ablutions toilets, one for girls and another for boys.
