Empakasi Secondary School

Location: Empakasi Olesheiki Sub location Athi River North Location, Machakos County

Amara started working with this school in 2017

This school was chosen because the girls started to drop out of school because of transport challenges and some due to getting married off.

The best solution to these challenges was to build a girls' dormitory.

Amara has assisted with:

  • Construction of a girls’ dormitory in February 2018
  • Donations of assorted reference books and curriculum text books
  • Regular donation of sanitary towels
  • Set up a fully functional mobile library in 2017
  • Introduced feeding program from June 2017 to February 2018
  • Amara intends to set up a vegetable garden and encourage students to plant trees as the area is very dry, arid and rocky.
