Handover Ceremony for the Project for the Development of Educational Infrastructure at Ntoluo Primary School

The official handing over ceremony for “The Project for the Development of Educational Infrastructure at Ntoluo Primary School” was held at Ntoluo Primary School in Moita Location, Transmara West Sub-County, Narok County on 26th of November, 2019.

With the objective of improving the pupils’ learning environment through construction of 6 classrooms, an 8-door toilet and installation of 120 pupils’ desks and a water tank, the Embassy of Japan granted to Ntoluo Primary School funds amounting to USD 85,949 (Approx. Ksh. 8.62 Million).

Previously except class 8, the pupils learnt in classrooms made of mud or under a tree, since the school had only one permanent classroom. The pupils’ learning was often disrupted by noise from other classrooms and by weather elements such as rain and wind. These factors also affected pupils’ concentration and their health. With the new educational facilities all the pupils will now be able to learn in a conducive environment, unaffected by harsh weather conditions.

During the handing over ceremony, H.E. Mr. Ryoichi Horie, Ambassador of Japan to Kenya, congratulated the community of Ntoluo Primary School and the representative from the Education office for the successful completion of the project. He requested the school community to take responsibility for good utilization and maintenance of the new facilities, which provided a bright future for the pupils, from among whom he hoped that future leaders of Kenya would come. In addition, an elder of Maasai in the community gave Maasai names, “Memusi” (lucky one) for the Ambassador and “Nashipai” (happiness) for his spouse in the ceremony.

Pupils welcomed the guests.

Ambassador Horie and his spouse surrounded by pupils sang a song.
