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 due to challenges with transport and some to early marriages.

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

Thanks to the provision of this facility, the population grew to 212 students and continues to grow year on year.
