Airtel Kenya has today extended its community sustainability program to Kajiado with the launch of several initiatives at Kipeto Primary School.

Through the rehabilitation of a borehole, the company has commissioned a water project which is expected to provide clean water to the school with an aim of enhancing the living standards for the students with improved hygiene and health in pursuit of academic excellence. The project is also expected to enhance the wellbeing of the people from the neighbouring community who are going to benefit from the water project.

The company has also facilitated the connection of the school to electricity, a gesture that is expected to bring a new learning and teaching experience to the students and teachers of the school. The school has also received 2 energy saving cooking stoves that will help the school to efficiently prepare food for over 500 students in the school.
