The transformative impact of Kakenya Center for Excellence is in no way limited to the girls alone. The parents and the community at large – initially unsure of the importance of educating a girl – today almost universally embrace the value of KCE.
Other schools in Kenya have Parent Teacher Associations where parents mostly take part in fundraising and are not actively involved in the school itself. Our Center believes in the full involvement of parents in running the school. Each classroom has a parent representative who checks on the students’ academic progress. Parents also take an active role in our school management committee.
