We partner with a cluster of primary schools in the isolated rural community of Kasigau in south-east Kenya. Together these schools serve a total of around 2,500 children, the majority of whom are from extremely disadvantaged backgrounds.
We partner with a small handful of primary schools in the isolated rural community of Kasigau in south-east Kenya.
The Kasigau community sits amongst semi-arid bushland in a wildlife corridor between the eastern and western parts of Tsavo National Park. From its most northerly point on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway, the Kasigau region encompasses about fifteen villages that straddle a dirt road running 35km south towards the distinctive mountain that rises spectacularly from the plains and lends its name to the area.
In the foothills of this mountain, and slightly beyond, sit our seven partner schools, which together serve around 2,600 pupils in a community of around 12,000 people.PHOTO GALLERY
