Kisimenyi - making a difference in the community

The best way to understand how the work of African Promise and Kids4kEnya is impacting the local community is to hear it directly in the words of the local leaders, head teacher at Kisimenyi, Mr Nicholus Mutui:

“I arrived at Kisimenyi Primary School and the sight that saluted my eyes was of the most modern and beautiful primary school in Taita Taveta county, and all courtesy of African Promise. The pupils had a lot to tell me about ‘our new school’ and I could see they are really proud of the school and wait eagerly to ‘migrate’.

 I wish you could know what you’ve done for these children and their parents. The parents look at the school and some shake their heads in disbelief while others cannot hold back tears of joy. These poor peasant farmers had been having their mud school full of cracked walls and crowded dark classrooms for so long that they had given up hope of building a good school for their children. Who would have thought that African Promise would come to their rescue!

 As each day we see the completion of the new school coming closer the pupils, teachers and parents pour their prayers to the Almighty God to bless you and African Promise. The pupils say that the best present they can give is [for Kisimenyi] to be a centre of academic brilliance producing pupils who will not stop in [secondary school] but move all the way to university.

 With all that is in my heart, I promise you total cooperation in making your promise of better primary schools for Kenya to be realised at Kisimenyi.”
