Situation

Like many primary schools in rural Kenya, Mkamenyi Primary School is in a woeful 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 challenges, and without sufficient government support to invest in long-term redevelopment, there are numerous barriers which prevent children receiving an education worth having.

Solution

By comprehensively rebuilding and expanding the school, and equipping it with the necessary resources and facilities, our project will remove many of the barriers that prevent children in the area from accessing and receiving even a basic standard of education.

  • None of us ever thought the school would be built to these standards.

    — Mercy Marigo, former teacher at Ngambenyi Primary

  • You should continue donating funds to African Promise because they are doing wonders with the funds that you give them.

    — Matilda Gasha, teacher at Kisimenyi Primary School

  • The facilities at Mkamenyi are very minimal

    — Nicholas Mutui, headteacher
