KiMMta Academic Success

Kibera Mpira Mtaani’s education programme has once again proved itself to be a great success. The results from last year’s KCPE (Kenyan Certificate of Primary Education) exams were outstanding with 34 out of 60 students scoring over 300 out of 500 marks and 24 out of the remaining 26 passing with 250 or above.

There are now four hundred attending Kibera Mpira Mtaani’s after school tuition classes on a daily basis. They are being coached by fourteen volunteer teachers who give their time to help the students learn and also mentor them.

At the moment, Kibera Mpira Mtaani (KiMMta) has seventy students in secondary school. These are students who have used their after school tuition programme to improve their grades in primary school and then been assisted to secure scholarships to pay for their secondary education. KiMMta has also been delighted to be able to find supporters who have helped one of their students move on to university where he is studying a Bachelor of Education. This young man appreciates the support he has received from KiMMta and often volunteers at the centre to tutor the next generation of students.

KiMMta Chairman, Vincent, says “Education is the biggest thing you can give to an African child today.”

We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to KiMMta’s success in educating children in Kibera by donating to the project via GlobalGiving. Your support is making a difference!
