Mathatani Secondary School

Location: Mua Hills, Mathatani location, Lukenya Zone, Machakos County, Kenya

The school started in 2010 and has a population of 123 students.

Amara started working with this school in 2017 because there is potential for growth in student population and that there is no secondary school nearby.

Since Amara's involvement the student population has risen by 86 students which adds to 209 students in 2021.
