As the new academic year starts this week, pupils in Perkerra Primary School in Marigat, Baringo County will be delighted to find their school fully renovated and structures upgraded, shielding them from the harsh environmental conditions they have been experiencing in their pursuit of knowledge.

Bayer East Africa has today commissioned the renovated school structures marking a new beginning for the school – 47 years since it was started. This is part of the company’s Corporate Social Engagement commitment (CSE) efforts to promote access to basic education for the poor, vulnerable and needy children.

Perkerra Primary School currently has a population of 221 pupils and 12 teachers. Most of the infrastructure in the school dates back to 1975, which has over the years undermined learning activities in the school.

“As a responsible corporate citizen, Bayer is committed to contributing to a better and safer environment for all. By supporting Perkerra Primary School, we are enhancing the learning environment and supporting access to quality basic education. We understand that the success of any society is deeply rooted in education and empowerment of young people and that the future of such is determined by the role the young people today,” said Anthony Maina, Head of Communications, and Bayer southeast Africa.

The company announced it had invested over KES 8.5 million in the upgrade project which started early this year, undertaken by Bayer’s implementing partner – So They Can – an education registered NGO that works together with communities and their governments to empower and help them realize their potential and meet their own needs.

To provide both teachers and the pupils with an improved learning environment, Bayer has offered an exciting new look to the classrooms which has better floors, roofs, doors, and windows, and repainted them clean to help the pupils to be focused and undisturbed.
