Clean Water and Nutrition

Hungry kids can’t learn well. Many TKP students come to school without breakfast and without the possibility of lunch (maybe even dinner) at home. Each year, our donors make sure TKP students receive clean water, breakfast and lunch every day at school. Preschoolers receive a nutritional porridge and primary students eat bread, rice and beans, and seasonal vegetables and fruit on our campuses.

Two campuses (Intimigom and Oltikampu) have fresh water wells for cooking and drinking water. Other campuses have rainwater collection tank and gutter systems to ensure access to clean water. With full stomachs, clean water, and renewed energy, students can get the most out of their learning time in TKP classrooms.

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

Our schools strive to meet UNICEF and World Health Organization standards for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Teachers, staff and students are trained on this set of guiding principles, which includes: proper hand washing with soap and use of choos (toilets). WASH standards help reduce the amount of diarrheal disease and waterborne illnesses at schools, which in turn equals better school attendance and performance.
