Over the last year, Kakuzi have been assisting schools to help them meet the required guidelines set by the Ministry of Health to prevent the spread of Covid-19. The first phase of the programme has seen 35 schools receive furniture, re-usable face masks, water harvesting tanks, the building of ablution blocks and hand washing tanks. Phase two of the programme involves a further 19 schools.


Kakuzi started phase one of the school donations by providing furniture, re-usable face masks, rainwater harvesting tanks and hand washing tanks.

Through the provision of furniture, schools will be able to maintain social distancing guidelines comfortably.

Providing masks alleviates the burden of cost from parents, by ensuring that they don’t have to worry about procuring masks for their school-going children.


Hand washing is an important tool in the fight against the spread of Covid-19, as such, there has been a great increase in demand for water in schools.

To help meet the demand, Kakuzi have given schools 10,000 litre rainwater harvesting tanks to ensure they have continuous access to clean water. Additionally, 35 schools received two handwashing tanks each to help promote handwashing among students.

Phase two of the school project has started and will target 19 schools. The schools are set to receive school furniture, re-usable facemasks, rain water harvesting kits and hand washing tanks.

Phase Two includes:

6,500 reusable facemasks to 14 schools

360 classroom desks and 10 office furniture

24 hand washing facilities to 12 schools

2x10,000lt   rainwater harvesting tanks 

18 latrines to 4 schools 

20 desks to Don Bosco Primary School
