About the project

The Challenge

Subuku Mixed Secondary school was established in 2011 but registered in 2013 by the community in order to reduce the number of drop out cases after class eight.This was because the nearest schools were approximately 6 km away which discouraged the students especially the girls from furthering their education.

This school was first hosted at Subuku Primary before they purchased land but had no infrastructure. The first two classes were constructed by the CDF. The school management later on fundraised to add to more classes which are still incomplete.

The school currently has a population of 145 students and 9 teachers.

The Intervention

In 2016, the Safaricom Foundation through the Pamoja Scheme funded the construction of a new classroom at a cost of Kshs. 1,000,000.

The management of Subuku Mixed Secondary School used the remaining amount of money to purchase laboratory equipment.

The Impact

The pupils from Primary Schools around now have a secondary school nearby.
For the first time in Njoro Sub-County a public Primary School has sent a student, a girl for that matter to a university. This was after the first candidates sat for their K.C.S.E exams in 2016.
It was also the first time for all candidates to score above E-grade, with more than half of the class of 32 students scoring over 200 marks.
