Mathatani Secondary School

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

The school started in 2010 and with a population of just 86 pupils.

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.  Today the student population stands at 230 and continues to grow.
