Kwa Mboo Primary School

Location: Kinanie, Machakos.

Amara started working with this school in 2014. Amara decided to rebuild and refurbish this school because the previous classrooms were a condemned cattle dip and the student’s population was expected to increase because there was no other public school in the vicinity.

Number of students grown from 102 students in 2012 to 298 students in 2021.
