Cheptuli Primary School

Kenya 668 beneficiaries

Cheptuli Primary School started in 1988 as an initiative of the community because other schools were located far away. A family donated part of the land for the school. The first headteacher was posted in that very year and the community initially built mud classrooms. In 2006, the first classroom was constructed, and 6 more were added in 2001.  Nearby community members rely on sugarcane farming as their primary source of income. Some members are casual laborers at the Butali Sugar Factory. The 668 students and staff of Cheptuli Primary School struggle to access sufficient water to meet their basic needs. If worrying about their daily water needs wasn't enough, their water source options pose significant safety risks.

Water for Nasaruni Girls – 2024

Kenya 200+ beneficiaries

For over 10 years, Nasaruni has been nurturing girls from the surrounding and far-reaching rural villages. They have grown to graduate from primary school, and now we built a high school so that they can keep to school. Parents have come to truly embrace the education at Nasaruni because it supports their cultural values and traditions in so many tangible and real ways. Nasaruni girls celebrate Maasai culture through dance, language, beadwork, food, and folktales. Most importantly, the parents in the community chose the values of the school themselves so that they trust Nasaruni to raise their daughters. Nasaruni Academy is helping girls and their families to write a new future full of hope, health, empowerment and success. Started by a local Maasai woman and her husband, the Academy and Secondary School are providing a chance for education to over 200 girls currently.Nasaruni Academy is situated 9km west of Narok, in the southwestern region of Kenya. According to Moses Sayo, School Director, the Nasaruni community is predominantly Maasai, who are pastoralists with some sporadic practice of small-scale farming. The area surrounding the school consists of approximately 7000 families. Some of the main challenges faced include the illiteracy rates and poverty. If you come to Narok and turn down a dusty, pot-holed road outside of town, you will travel 1 kilometer past ramshackle sheds and smiling shop clerks…  to find a magical place where dreams come true, laughter and serious study unite. Here, girls are nourished, educated, and thoroughly transformed as they grow into young women of purpose and confidence in the Maasai community. Welcome to Nasaruni Academy for Maasai Girls in Narok, Kenya!
