Nambale Magnet School Kenya
The Nambale Magnet School provides a home, an education, and hope for a fruitful life for children orphaned or made vulnerable by AIDS in Western Kenya. The lives of impoverished Kenyan children are being changed by giving each child an equal chance to strive.
The Nambale Magnet School, founded by the Rev. Evalyn Wakhusama, adapts the “magnet” concept from American public education to a Kenyan context by embracing the notion of a primary school that mixes children from different social strata, giving each child an equal chance to thrive.
The school opened in January 2009 with one class of 35 students. It now has six classes (pre kindergarten through grade four) with 220 students. Eventually it will serve 350 learners, at least half of which will be orphans or vulnerable children. The school is already viewed by the surrounding community as the light on the hill that is raising the hopes of all around. For more information, visit its website at www.nambalemagnet.org.
NPC supports Nambale financially and through the ministry of presence and service—several members periodically visit and serve the community on short term mission trips. For more information contact NPC Mission Team Liaisons Marilyn and John Parker at , or .
