Mutunkei Primary School

Mutunkei Primary School

Mutunkei Primary School is located in Kitengela township of Kajiado County of Kenya. The school has a student population of 320 students. Most parents of children in the school are casual labourers in flower farms in Kitengela area. The school has a feeding program which supports children who can afford it. The school uses a makeshift kitchen (see attached photos taken during a recent visit to the school) and therefore would like to be supported with a decent kitchen and a feeding program.

The school has pupils from nearly all the tribes in Kenya; the Maasai, Luhya, Luo, Kikuyu, Kamba, Kalenjin, Embu, Meru, Taita, and Kiisi among others. The parents are immigrant casual laborers from all over Kenya. Most of them earn less than $ 100.00 a month and really struggle to feed and educate their children.

The school seats on 2 acres of land donated by the late senior chief Mutunkei when he saw the need to have a public school nearby to support these needy families. The school is about 10 years old since inception. Almost half of the school population stay hungry during school days since they are unable to contribute some little beans and maize grains for the lunch meal. Some are lucky to get something at home.
