Located in the remote northwestern county of Kenya, Nakwamekwi High School (NHS) is envisioned to be a private co-educational boarding school comprising of Forms 1-4 (Grades 9-12) and offering the Kenyan Ministry of Education secondary school curriculum. The 6-hectare (15-acre) school campus will provide 320 students (160 girls and 160 boys) from the Turkana County and beyond a safe and nurturing educational and living environment, in addition to staff housing for 12 teachers.
NHS is currently being built! So far, in additon to drilling the water borehole and installing the hand-pump, 8 school buildings have been constructed. We just finished the construction of the library/computer lab in September 2016. Construction of the water tower – an elevated structure supporting a water tank constructed at a height to pressurize a water supply system for distribution of potable water throughout the school campus – is currently underway.
Watch this space as we continue to develop our school and website!
