On November 24, 2010 PowerUp visited Ongata Rongai Primary School in Kenya.
Ongata Ronkai Primary School is a public school started in the year 1949 occupying an area of about 12 acres. Its classes are from Std 1 to 8 which are government sponsored.
We found that the school had no electricity. Most of the students were from the Kware slum. Many who complete primary school have nowhere to go.
There are enough books and teachers but challenges are faced in school transport, food, sanitation, water, electricity, uniforms. Students number about 1,400.
