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 population was expected to increase as there were no other public school in the vicinity.

Number of students grown from 102 students in 2012 to 330 students in 2023.
