Immaculate Girls has approx. 400 female students aged 15 – 20 years, most of whom travel far from the region and are accommodated in the boarding section. The number of boarding scholars is expected to increase in future. The few functioning pit latrines and the showers are deficient and unhygienic without any proper drainage. The school depends a shallow well for water supply which dries up in the dry season. This forces students to waste valuable school time fetching water from the neighbouring boys’ school or the local river for hygiene and cooking purposes. Although the region of Kitale experiences heavy rainfalls from March/April to August/September there is no in-built rainwater harversting system in the school.
