Whilst primary education in Kenya is free in theory, parents must still pay for uniforms, materials and lunch. Most government schools lack adequate facilities, skilled and motivated teachers, still use corporal punishment and are terribly overcrowded. Private schools are not an option for our families.
We provide a caring and nurturing environment, small class sizes and work hard at encouraging our families to support their children’s education. We also challenge some of the cultural attitudes that hinder a child’s, and especially a girls, development in their community.
