Over Sh20 million boost to schools in Kitui, Nyeri

Three schools in Kitui and Nyeri counties will receive a total of Kes21.1 million in infrastructure facelift to improve the learning environment for about 700 students.

The support, which coincides with the start of current learning calendar, has been extended under the Sanlam Kenya Schools Project in partnership with World Vision Kenya who will be the implementing partner.

In Mwingi, Kiyui County, learners at Kalatine Primary School will receive a new classroom and renovation of existing ones while Kakululo Secondary School will get a new girls’ dormitory. Birisha Primary School in Mweiga, Nyeri County will get a new classroom.

Dubbed “Sanlam Kenya Schools Project”, the initiative is a Sanlam Groupwide initiative through which the group promotes quality education in Africa through support from Sanlam Foundation Trust in South Africa, a non-profit which has over the last 10 years invested more than US$40 million in the education sector, financial literacy initiatives, health (HIV/AIDS), enterprise and supplier development initiatives and employee volunteerism.

“We will work in partnership with the Ministry of Education and learning institutions to play our role in facilitating a conducive learning environment for schools in need, leading to the better academic performance of the learners,” Sanlam Kenya Group CEO, Dr Nyamemba Tumbo.
