Overview

The goal of Team Sifuni Mungu’s project is to develop a comprehensive plan for a boys’ secondary school in the West Pokot District of Kenya, which is only a few miles from the Ugandan border.  In the small village of Alale, Reformed Church of America (RCA) Global Mission and the Africa Inland Church oversee a mission station, where there is already a medical clinic, church, primary school, and unfinished girls' secondary school and dormitory  The plan includes the design of a school building, dormitory housing, and water management systems.  The water management systems include potable water treatment and storage and wastewater treatment of effluent from the site.  Local design methods and materials will be considered in the designs.  The site plans also include the use of appropriate technology and an inexpensive budget.

The Final Report is a summary of the design process and results.
