Kariandusi School Trust is a charity set up for the advancement of education amongst children in rural Kenya, addressing the need for schools by the construction of school buildings and the ongoing provision of school facilities and educational materials in and around those schools.
Kariandusi School Trust was conceived in 2003 to build just one school. Motivated by the success of the finished project, a further ten primary schools have been funded and built or much improved and are now in full use. The most recent school was handed over to the local community in early 2014. Our next challenge was to build a magnificent secondary school that is local and affordable. Work on site started in February 2011 on the Woodard Langalanga Secondary School and the first pupils started there early in 2012.
In February 2015 the last of the major infrastructure elements of the school, the Assembley Hall, was handed over in a memorable ceremony. There are now 424 students in secondary education, many with valuable bursaries.
Here is an extract from a news story broadcast for Ebru TV on Kenyan television. It was filmed in October 2013 when Harry Vialou Clark and his wife visited Simba Primary School in Kenya to lay the foundation stone of the new nursery building. It gives you an idea of what we do. The building project is being sponsored by Port Regis School in Dorset.
