THE KINGS‘ ACADEMY thus far is a vision, which can only become reality with the dedicated and relentless support of volunteers willing to go the extra-mile for
giving orphans and children from poor families a future. Even though attending school has become compulsory according to Kenyan law, education continues to remain low as most parents can only
afford to send their children to public schools, which are hopelessly overcrowded. On average across all primary schools in Kenya, there are approximately 40 students per teacher, which means
average class sizes amount to around 60 to 70 students. This means that teachers are forced to use teaching methods that cannot take into account individual students’ needs. Students’ strengths
and weaknesses cannot be addressed adequately and individual talents can never be revealed.
To fulfill our aim of establishing a learning environment that fosters critical thinking and focuses on individual strengths we are seeking to lay the necessary foundation for allowing us to accept the first students to Nursery School in January 2013 and then continuously grow as an additional class is accepted into the school every year.
What are our plans?
THE KINGS’ ACADEMY is intended to continuously grow as an additional class is accepted into the school every year to provide for students from Nursery School through Standard 8. Additionally, orphaned or abandoned children are supposed to be provided with the opportunity to live on the school campus and thus grow up in a sheltered, safe and nurturing environment. We will therefore need support regarding construction work in the next eight years, as well as volunteers, who are willing to assist the teaching staff as soon as the first children have been accepted into the school.
