KPCS for children with disabilities and children with albinism (Kigoma)

Kabanga Protectorate Center and School

'' Improvement of the living conditions of children and young people with disabilities, and with albinism of the KPCS of Kabanga in Kasulu (Kigoma, Tanzania) ''

KPCS (Kabanga Protectorate Center and School) located in Kabanga, Kasulu District in Kigoma, Tanzania, is a public residential school that currently houses children and young people with disabilities, and albinism. Due to the scarcity of its own resources, the center has major deficiencies in infrastructure and services, which means that the quality of life has become a serious health and hygiene problem for everyone. Our projects for this center aim to ensure better well-being and comfort for children and young people with disabilities and albinism at the center; and consequently offer them greater comprehensive care, dignity, equity, social integration and self-confidence.

Currently, thanks to the participation of the ONGD Persona Solidaridad, the BURGOS City Council and our own resources from partners and private donors, we have completed Project 1 for the completion of the new dormitory module for 80 children and its equipment .

COCINAS SALUDABLES EN AFRICA: Una cocina higiénica y segura para Kabanga

Translation of the video texts into English: HEALTHY KITCHEN: Clearing the air in African schools In Africa, school meals are vital to children's health and their ability to learn effectively. In many contexts, these meals are the main source of balanced nutrition for children. Of the thousands of primary schools in Tanzania, more than 90% rely on firewood to cook meals for staff and pupils. This amounts to an annual consumption of more than 1 million metric tonnes of fuelwood in Tanzania, contributing substantially to the country's deforestation. Firewood is often burned in large cauldrons to cook rice, beans, ugali and other traditional foods that can take a long time to cook. The burning of firewood creates a toxic smoke environment in the kitchens of schools and education centres, which is inhaled by the cooks, but also by pupils and teachers, as air pollution permeates school spaces,including canteens, classrooms and playgrounds and other common areas. KABANGA KITCHEN: habitability for a hygienic kitchen. The kitchen of the Kabanga school centre is a clear example of what we have just explained and represents the reality faced by all schools when it comes to cooking. A hygienic and sanitary kitchen for the Kabanga school is essential to protect health. and improve the well-being of all the children and people who live and work here. It not only prevents food-borne diseases, but also contributes to improved nutrition, promotes long-term safe eating practices and has an impact on children's school performance. The kitchen of the Kabanga school centre provides 3 meals a day to its boarders (around 200 people including students, teachers and staff), which translates into 600 meals per day, or more than 200,000 meals per year. The Tanzanian government has announced that 31 January 2025 will be the deadline for institutions to stop using fuelwood will be the deadline for institutions to stop using firewood or charcoal for cooking in order to save the environment. KARIBIA's project for the integral rehabilitation of the Kabanga school centre's kitchen aims to promote the right to health of all its residents with a "clean cooking", guaranteeing food safety and minimising the risk of continuous exposure to fumes from fossil fuel combustion.

Proyecto KABANGA Nuevo Dormitorio para 80 niños

Los primeros trabajos realizados han sido la construcción de un falso techo y su recubrimiento con placas de yeso y repaso general de las paredes. Se ha nivelado y pavimentado todo el suelo del edificio con mortero de cemento. También se ha llevado a cabo la instalación eléctrica de todo el edificio, distribuyendo varios puntos de luz con sus interruptores en la zona habitacional y en los aseos. Se han colocado 26 ventanas grandes de aluminio paneleadas con sus mosquiteras y las 18 medianas y pequeñas entre las de los aseos y las complementarias. Se encargaron a carpinteros locales las 6 puertas principales y las 10 puertas individuales de los aseos. La zona de baño se ha completado con un lavadero y 4 letrinas, 1 retrete para los niños con discapacidad física, urinarios, un lavamanos y 5 duchas con todos los desagües acabados. En el exterior del edificio, se han acondicionado las rampas en los diferentes accesos que tiene el dormitorio. Y en la parte trasera de la zona de aseos se ha construido la fosa séptica, que es esencial debido a la falta de alcantarillado público. Una fosa séptica con dos cámaras, una receptora de todo y donde se depositarán los sólidos, y otra por donde se desviarán los líquidos. ______________________________________________________________The first works carried out were the construction of a false ceiling and its covering with plasterboard and general repointing of the walls. The entire floor of the building has been levelled and paved with cement mortar. The electrical installation of the entire building has also been carried out, distributing several light points with their switches in the living area and in the toilets. Twenty-six large panelled aluminium windows with their mosquito nets and 18 medium and small windows have been installed in the toilets and other areas. The 6 main doors and 10 individual doors for the toilets were ordered from local carpenters. The bathroom area has been completed with a laundry room and 4 latrines, 1 toilet for physically handicapped children, urinals, a hand basin and 5 showers with all the drains completed. On the outside of the building, ramps have been installed at the different entrances to the dormitory. And at the back of the toilet area, the septic tank has been built, which is essential due to the lack of public sewage. A septic tank with two chambers, one receiving everything and where the solids will be deposited, and the other where the liquids will be diverted.
