At Katulani Secondary school, about half an hours drive out of Kitui town, you can see how a help project really can make a difference. In 2009, the Norwegian organization Help to Self-Help in Africa built a pig house. This was the start of a project that later has led to a bio gas plant and fresh and stable water supply.
The Katulani district is very dry. Due to the rare rainfall, it’s very hard to grow food – which has a tremendous impact on the local economy as many of the people of Kitui is farmers. The 300 students in Katulani Secondary school often comes from poor families – which is the reason why many of the students only eat the food given at school. Help to Self-Helps project at Katulani is therefore very important, as it gives the school both food, water and an income. For the community around, the project contribute to more jobs and knowledge.
