COMPLETION OF CLASSROOM FOR CHILDREN WITH DYSLEXIA
By Phyllis Munyi - Director
Rare Gem Talent School was founded in 2012. In its first term of operation, it had seven students, two teachers and one support staff.
It was registered by the Ministry of Education as a special needs school in 2015 and as an examination centre for KCPE in the same year. Students sat for their first KCPE at Rare Gem Talent School in 2016.
In 2016, the boarding facilities of the school were outstretched, the school started encouraging parents from Kitengela and its environs to have their students going back home in the evening. The students are picked at strategic places in the morning by the school van and delivered back in the evening.
In 2017, the school started a secondary school. The first cohort wrote their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination (KCSE) in 2021.
School Population and Distribution
The school is registered as a special school. By 2022, the school had a population of 198 children ranging from kindergateen, primary and secondary school with various neurodevelpmemtnal disorders and dyslexia.
In 2020, at the height of COVID-19, the school acquired a piece of land through a bank loan. In 2021-2022, through the support of GlobalGiving Donations and other individual sponsors the school emabarked on construction of new classrooms. Early 2023, part of the first floor of the construction was completed and the school relocated.
