MEET OUR TEAM
Fundamentally, people determine the success or failure of any organization. Given its extremely limited resources, this is especially true for Gatoto. The high demand for jobs in Kenya allows the school to find top-quality staff, even though it cannot afford to pay high salaries. The staff are extremely dedicated to the success of Gatoto, as it provides their livelihood as well as creating an opportunity for the children in the community. There are currently 27 teachers and 14 members of support staff, including the manager, an accountant, librarian, a groundskeeper, guards, cooks and a social worker. Great attention is paid when selecting new staff to ensure their commitment to education and the principles of the school. The majority of the teachers are certified at a “P1” level or higher, and some have over 10 years experience. Their dedication is a major reason for the success of Gatoto. The staff are proud of what the school has accomplished in the past and are confident in its potential for the future. In fact, many volunteer their free time to participate in activities to sustain Gatoto, such as helping apply for grant proposals.
