Summary

An ambitious project to transform a dilapidated and under-funded primary school in rural Kenya into a first-class facility with the capacity to deliver an education worth having, ensuring the long and tiring walk to school for hundreds of disadvantaged children is a worthwhile one.

Challenge

In common with many primary schools in rural Kenya, Mkamenyi Primary School is in a truly pathetic state, with crumbling classrooms, filthy and unhygienic sanitation facilities, and a chronic lack of teachers, educational materials, furniture, food and water. In the face of these overwhelming challenges, and without sufficient government support to invest in the necessary redevelopment, the school is simply unable to provide an education worth having to the 500+ children that it serves.

Solution

A piecemeal, long-term redevelopment is not the solution for Mkamenyi; something much more radical and immediate is required. With that in mind, we have put together exciting plans for a two-year, 250,000 project to comprehensively rebuild, remodel and expand the school.

Long-Term Impact

This redevelopment, like others we have undertaken elsewhere, will transform the school into a first-class institution that will remove many of the barriers that prevent children in the area from accessing and receiving even a basic standard of education.
