The Nambale Magnet School opened in January 2009. Its mission is to provide a home, an education and hope for a fruitful life for children orphaned or made vulnerable by AIDS in Western Kenya. At the Nambale Magnet School, the lives of impoverished Kenyan children are being changed. Class, social and economic divisions are being bridged in a nurturing environment where learning is shared by boys and girls, both destitute and middle class, parentless and from intact households, in a common educational setting. This is the “magnet” vision of equality, equity and transformation that has already made the Nambale Magnet School a beacon in its region. The long-term vision of the Nambale Magnet School goes beyond housing and educating indigent children in one of the poorest parts of Africa. In time, we see transformed lives and a better future for the entire community – and eventually their whole nation.
