children at school in Kenya

The Echoes of Mercy School has a roll of 450 children with pre-school and primary classes up to Grade 8 when pupils sit a national exam to secure entry to secondary school. The school is in an area that embraces 113 schools and recently has been graded first in the government exams. The school is well equipped within substantial buildings. There are 18 teachers, all of whom are qualified, and a headmaster of outstanding ability, vision and drive. Unlike most schools in this kind of environment in Africa there is a wide curriculum that embraces visits to historical sites and other venues of academic interest.

In the summer holidays the school is used as a teacher training centre.

In summary, the progress made in this school in the relatively few years of its existence has been quite outstanding.
