Ayany Primary School Gets Boost On World Food Day


As the world marked world food day on Friday Ayany Primary school in Kibra got a food production boost from Davis and Shirtliff.

The school which has for a long time faced a challenge in producing food consumed at the school during lunch hour, benefited from a green house from Davis and Shirtliff.

David Bolo, the General manager was n charge of operations said the project was initiated after an old student of Ayany reached out to the company to help with food production.

“We received a request from an old student to do this project in Ayany Primary. We assessed the situation and realized it was in need of such a project. They can now grow their crops for consumption here and sell some to boost their own needs.” Bolo said

Ayany Primary head master Jackson Ndambuki said the project is good but cited unforeseen challenges.

“My heart is overwhelmed with this and I’m happy. We however fear our crops may die because the project incurs huge electricity bills which the school may be unable to pay.” He said.

His concerns were echoed by Ghetto Radio MD Julius Owino aired the need to move the project to a solar panel to allow the project to succeed.

The concerns were however addressed by Bolo who added that plans are already underway to move the main water pump from the main electricity to a solar panel.

“We have already received requests to move the water pump from the main electricity to a solar panel. It is a costly project but we are in the process of sourcing for a sponsor to help us complete the project.” Bolo added
