School Construction

Joining Hearts and Hands works with school communities in various locations throughout Kenya. The majority of our work has been in Nyanza and Western Kenya. Our sole project in Tanzania is the Usambara High School for Girls in Korogwe, Tanzania. Below are but a few of the projects we have completed over the years. Generally, we have two construction projects per year.
