Siret Outgrowers Empowerment and Productions Ltd has had several premium sponsored projects which are part of its success story. These projects will be discussed in details.
CRITERIA FOR SELECTING PROJECTS
For any project to be undertaken by our company, it must:
Have the support of the majority of members from the community
It should not be a duplication of a similar project nearby
It must be a public project not private
There is no discrimination in use of the project
Commercial and Office Building
Our company Sireet Outgrowers empowerment and productions Ltd is currently on a project to set up a big mansion at Nandi Hills town to house the operations in the company.
Tea Transprt vehicles
Sireet outgrowers decided to provide new means of transportation of green tea leaves to tea processing plants from tea farms after an outcry from members.
Initially, members hade to arrange for their own means of transporting tea leaves to the tea factory through means like human transport, bicycles and motor-cycles.
This was particularly cumbersome and discourages large tea plantations. The company saw this project as very viable as it would offer much help to our customers.
This is a typical rural community school which has struggled over time to have decent facilities for its students.
The school has a large water catchment area of about 5km radius.
Kiptulus secondary school is low cost school where low income parents can take their children, otherwise they would not get Secondary education.
The school had an old kitchen which was very smoky and in poor hygienic condition. Firewood consumption was very high forcing the school to spend a lot on firewood from its limited resources. That’s why the company offered to salvage the situation.
Kapsimotwa Secondary School
The school, which is located in a remote location had no accommodation available for rent by teachers. They therefore did not want to be posted to the school due to lack of housing. Before our company offered to help subdue the situation, the school had only one accommodation facility which wasn’t enough.
The community on the other hand has helped put up 4 class rooms with the assistance of the government. Generally, Kapsimotwo Secondary school is a low cost school where children whose parents cannot afford to pay fees in other schools can take their children so as to reduce cases of school dropouts.
The company took up the project as it would be cumbersome for parent to contribute towards the same given their struggle in paying school fees.
Siret Secondary School
The school is located in a remote location in Siret. It had two classrooms put up by the community which was insufficient and needed a third class for the following year.
The school doesn’t charge much and therefore, affordable for most parents. This by implication has helped reduce cases of school dropouts.
The parents would have had to contribute towards building the classroom and this would become a burden as they had to pay school as well.
The company also decided to make arrangements for desks for the Siret seconday school which hade been a problem since the enrolment of students improved.
Sinendet area is surrounded by hills and therefore water supply by gravity is very sustainable. Streams are very far from where farmers live – over 1 km in certain cases.
On assessment by the Company, this project had a potential to benefit over 3000 people.
Coupled with that, the area is highly viable for horticulture which will assist farmers as farm sizes here are relatively small.
This project was an emergency assistance to the school after three classrooms were damaged in a storm. SOEP chipped in to help construct one class room as its contribution.
At Siwo Dispensary, there existed a dispensary providing only outpatient services.
An expansion was intended to create a laboratory, maternity wing and a 2 bed ward for short term admission so as to offer more service to society.
Other health care facilities that clients had as alternatives are 20km away in Nandi Hills and Kapsabet.
The dispensary serves a large population of over 16000 people and therefore was necessary for the company to undertake the project to safe life.
