Keneni Academy

Keneni Academy is located in the village of Kecheiyat in Bomet County, Kenya, bordering the Motigo Hills in the Great Rift Valley. The school is less than five miles from the famous Tenwek Mission Hospital. They currently educate 114 students (67 boys and 47 girls) from pre-primary through fourth grade.

Keneni’s vision is to provide Holistic Education while Nurturing Christian Values with Excellence. The school serves the community not just by educating their youth, but also by teaching the parents how to make wise decisions and to work efficiently. The teachers and students engage the community in nearly everything they do, showing them the importance of education (as there are parents who never went to school and don’t see the need for their children to be educated.) They encourage girls to study and set future career goals. They also instruct students and parents on sanitation, nutrition, saying no to drugs, understanding the importance of safe sex, and having open, productive discussions.

With no tarmacked streets, just rough and muddy roads, getting to school involves risk for the children, especially during the rainy season, but they make the walk. Most families go without three meals, but the school offers at least one, otherwise learning is not possible. With love, nourishment, and knowledge, we give the students of Keneni what they need to believe that life will be better one day.

Immediate needs include computers, books, phase two of the water project (two plastic tanks, piping, and three tap points), and a daily food reserve.

After passing quality, environmental impact, and health/safety inspections, Keneni was approved as an official exam center and given a Kenya National Examination Center (KNEC) Code 25508761. They opened their doors on January 2nd, 2019.
