The initiative includes projects such as this in which BATUK works with partners to support Education in the County.

Other recent examples of BATUK assisting the local community include helping Habitat for Humanity make sustainable bricks, installing a 10k litre tank for the Simama Project in Nanyuki, worked to clear the Arijiju Dispensary of bats and termites, as well as volunteering at Tanzania’s Neema Village and the Baraka Orphanage.
