The Need

There is only one formal public primary school serving more than 2000 children in Mukuru Kwa Reuben while there is no secondary school, public or private. Not a single public school has been established in the last 20 years. Due to the limited education provision, and in spite of GoK’s launch of FPE in 2003 and secondary fees subsidy in 2008, the enrollment level in the slum is only 30%, against a national level of over 85%. On average it costs $200 to send a child to primary school and $500 to secondary for a year. This is a challenge to Mukuru residents where 55% earn between $500 – $1250 per year.

We are proud of our students who were able to complete their secondary schooling through the support of the GIDP sponsorship programme, after completing their formative years at Gatoto Primary School.

Walter Shivo

The holistic education I received at Gatoto Primary School (1992 – 2000), paved the way for my secondary and university education, career path and numerous extra-mural activities – presentation of academic papers, leadership roles, talent shows, sport participation and philanthropic activities.

Gatoto and their valued sponsors rescued my siblings and myself from a life of crime, drug addiction and sexual immorality by providing the moral support, education and financial assistance to fulfill my dreams and goals. I hope to return to hold another “Child’s Hand” and offer them the same invaluable guidance I have received.

“The holistic approach of the school to the students – physical, emotional and social – is impressive, and the positive expansion of the school and their invaluable programmes is due to the hard work, dedication and commitment of the staff, who have the support and appreciation of the surrounding Mukuru community.”
