An original italian initiative in Watamu

What happened at Jacaranda Beach Primary School?

28-02-2022 by Freddie del Curatolo

Today we are going to talk about a nice, curious and smile-bringing initiative that, however, hides a much larger and necessary project that has materialized and can still grow thanks to tourism.
Pasquale Tiritò has been known for years to be a serious entrepreneur who deeply knows the reality in which he decided to build and manage hotel facilities, namely Jacaranda Bay in Watamu. He has not only been involved in creating the conditions to bring thousands of tourists to Kenya, organizing their trips starting from the relationship with airlines and tour operators, up to targeted promotions and tailor-made packages of sea and savannah.
But it has also been able to look at the needs and problems of its employees and the local population that revolves around the beautiful strip of sand where its resorts are located.
The hinterland of Jacaranda Bay, from the village of the same name to the larger one of Mbaraka Chembe, is an arid, stony area with very few agricultural resources and many endemic problems caused by the lack of an adequate water network and other basic infrastructure.
So, in addition to bringing water, activating various charitable initiatives and building a church, in 2010 he enlarged the cramped elementary school in the village of Jacaranda so that it could accommodate 450 children, built the nursery and donated everything to Kilifi County, which in turn did other work. But what we are going to tell today, is a curious and unexpected story that thanks to Tiritò and a particular initiative has brought light-heartedness and unity within the Jacaranda Beach Primary School, in the name of collaboration between Italy and Kenya.
What are we talking about? Watch the video below and you'll understand!
