The re-opening of schools in Kenya enters its 14th month, and schools across the country have reported positive coronavirus cases.

Kenya has since eased COVID-related restrictions in the country, owing to the decline in reported cases over the past few months. With many students being asymptomatic, teachers, especially those over the age of 50, or those with underlying conditions, must be especially careful while on the clock, to avoid contracting the virus. Some critics have been calling for renewed school closures to shield the teachers and students. Schools are therefore very high-risk centers, and public schools, having limited resources, are vulnerable in the war against the coronavirus. It is with this in mind that the #ImprovingLives Initiative, through the Machakos branch, have donated 5 handwashing stations to KEAA ABC Secondary school. The school is in Machakos County, Kenya, and has a population of 270 students. The handing over of the handwashing stations was attended by D&S Machakos Branch, led by Branch Manager, Christopher Muli.
