CENTERS FOR EXCELLENCE
Our all-girls boarding schools provide life-changing education to vulnerable girls in rural Kenya. In addition to providing a world-class education, we know raising an empowered child requires a multifaceted approach. Our holistic and girl-centered approach ensures each and every girl’s full and unique needs are met so that she can achieve her full potential.
Located in the remote Maasai village of Enoosaen (pop. 10,000) almost 250 miles west of Nairobi, the Kakenya Center for Excellence campus is a beacon of hope in the community. Built on acreage donated by community elders, the first classroom building opened in 2009. From 2010-2017, the campus expanded to meet the needs of its growing student population, offering art and science facilities, safe dormitories, teacher housing, a multi-purpose hall, and a library. Indigenous trees and vegetable gardens bring life to the grounds, while still leaving plenty of room for students to play sports and learn outdoors.
