When the EAC asked the community in Takaungu how we could best help them, we were asked to start a top-notch professional Nursery and Primary School.
The EAC opened the Vutakaka Junior School on January 6, 2004. In 2012, we completed building the classrooms and have three kindergarten classes and grades 1 through 8.
321 students fill classrooms of about 20 students per grade.
Our school is staffed by top-notch, qualified teachers from the local community and assisted by interns from graduate programs around the world and our students consistently score highest among students from the surrounding 30 schools in the District.
We provide our students with the opportunity to score high enough on exams to be accepted into quality high schools around Kenya and therefore have more choices in their lives.
For the past 3 years, we have ensured that every graduating student goes to high school and have secured funding for their education beyond our walls.
Currently, we raise funds for salary and school supplies. Our school's farm ensures we have food for all the students for breakfast and lunch everyday. We received donated computers and desks.
To cover our school funds for 2016, we need to raise $10,000.
