Home > Kisima Mixed Secondary School

Kisima School offers secondary education to children and young people who would otherwise not be able to get this opportunity. The students come from seven counties in Northern, Central and Western Kenya, and from around fifteen different Kenyan communities.

In Kenya, secondary education has to be paid for, making it something that is beyond the reach of poorer families. This is especially true of Northern Kenya where a high proportion of families are unable to afford secondary education.

Kisima Mixed Secondary School provides free education to children who are from disadvantaged backgrounds but who have proven academic potential to benefit from further learning. Our aim is that through education they will become a resource for their family and community. This is reflected in the school motto: ‘Empowered to Transform’.
