Project implementation

Friends Secondary School Kibisi is located in Mbakalo ward, Kenya, and has a population of 1,200 students. The school currently lacks essential facilities such as a meeting hall, a library, and a computer lab. Major school gatherings, including mentorship forums, chapel services, debating events, and parent-teacher association meetings, take place under a large tree in the school field. While the open field is suitable for certain times of the year, it becomes inadequate during adverse weather conditions, particularly when it rains.

To address these challenges, this project aims to construct a multi-purpose resource center for the school. The proposed center will include a meeting hall, which can also serve as a dining hall for students and teachers, a computer laboratory, and a library. Beyond fulfilling the school’s immediate needs, this project offers additional benefits. The secondary school shares its border with Kibisi Primary School, which also faces challenges related to inadequate facilities. By expanding the secondary school’s infrastructure, the extra space can be utilized to benefit the primary school during periods when secondary school students do not occupy the center.
