Kimuka Girl's Secondary School

Location: Kajiado West, Kajiado County, Ngong Town

Amara started working with this school in 2021.  We selected this school because of the large population of girls attending and lack of adequate boarding facilities to cater for the numbers. The current semi-permanent dormitories that had a capacity for 50 girls was housing 68 - 70 girls with hardly any room for the girls to move around or even to climb the bunk above.  It was therefore decided that a dormitory was urgently needed especially for the new form one students.

Student numbers increased from 12 students in 2008 to 1045 students currently.
