Greta Rowe Primary School – Naromoru, Kenya

The school was established in 2011 by a teacher, Jane Moile. In 2019 there were 51 children (27 girls and 24 boys) aged 3-6 years old, from kindergarten to standard to 3rd grade.

Before the school was set up, these young children were trekking for over 5 kilometres to the nearest school, having to cross a river and a dangerous road that claimed many lives, in some cases going through the forest where they encountered wildlife and many got kidnapped.  The new school is about 4km from the Mount Kenya national park.

With the encouragement of her husband, James, Jane followed her passion, starting a school to save these lives. Fighting against tough processes, the couple donated their own less-than-half-acre piece of land to establish the school.

Their heroic aim is to get as many children as possible to their school, providing an holistic environment to encourage their personal growth and education.

To accommodate more children, the school needs a sustainable feeding programme, more skilled teaching staff, teaching materials, more classrooms and staffrooms, labour to look after the land, and finally a School Bus to enable these children to attend school daily, without taking unnecessary risks.

The school’s Facebook page can be found here.  There are some great photos on there.
