About the project
Kisima Girls is a provincial secondary school located in Maralal, Samburu County. It was the first girls high school established in 1989 by a number of people among them the then District Commissioner Zachary Ogongo and the then District Education Officer Ibrahim Hussein. Most of the development in the school was attributed to assistance received from non-governmental organization. However, with a population of 388 girls, the school had inadequate facilities in the dining hall with most students unable to enjoy meals at the hall due to lack of enough furniture. The school also lacks an effective printer which posed a challenge during the exam period.
Part of the Foundation’s work is to increase children’s access to quality basic education; we believed that education is key for any society to be able to advance. Safaricom Foundation assisted the school in the acquisition of dining hall furniture and a digital duplicator copy printer all worth Ksh. 800, 000.
With the additional facilities, Kisima Girls’ High School is now able to accommodate all the students in the dining hall as well as create room for the school to admit more peoples. Processing of exam papers has also been made easy and the students now receive high quality examination papers.
