We are thankful to the well-wishers for their generous heart for lending a hand to our school at large in the costing of emptying our toilets. We are glad to let you know that the exhauster came and emptied the three toilets we have in our compound.
The exhauster cost $180 Canadian dollars to the three toilets which has an exchange rate of Ksh70 per Canadian dollar.
One of the drivers to the exhausters helping in connecting the drainage pipe to the toilet.
And as you can see our toilets are not in good conditions you can see from the pictures and therefore we appeal to our well- wishers and volunteers to help in the raising funds in building up good and hygienic toilets and bathrooms to our boys and girls.
This is our boy’s toilet
This toilet belongs to the staff which by the look is not in good condition some of the stones have worn out and this can make it collapse which is too dangerous to us and the students.
This toilet belongs to our girl’s.
Attached are more pictures to the boys and girls bathrooms and also you can see they are in unhygienic condition that they can cause diseases to our students due to the stagnant water which cause water borne diseases thus leading to spread of mosquitoes leading to malaria to our lovely students. They are also congested due to the small space and they are forced to bathe group by group because we are privileged to have many students 200 in number.

St. Charles Lwanga Children Centre secondary school administration would like to thank The Dalbrae SHOW committee so much for your humble acceptance to fund the construction of the modern energy saving stoves. Being among the most important structures in the Martha’s kitchen (kitchen donated by Sisters of Saint Martha, Antigonish, NS, Canada), the stoves preserves energy, are a source of good and nutritious food that is hygienically prepared. The Centre has been lacking proper energy saving stoves which has led to some problems hindering the progress of the kitchen work such as;
1. Late preparation of food
2. Much accumulation of smoke affecting our cooks
3. Much consumption of firewood.
The above shortcomings came to an end when the SHOW groups humbly accepted and gave a hand to our school. We are much thankful and our cooks and students can’t hide the joy they have towards this.
i) Preparation of food on time
ii) No more accumulation of smokes
iii)No much consumption of firewood (sometimes $10 a wheel barrow load)
