Ngando Preparatory is a community, not-for-profit school in Dagoretti. It has relatively poor facilities, but an energetic and committed staff. The Head Mistress and teachers are very committed to excellence in education. They have just begun efforts to fund a move to better facilities. Ngando Preparatory is geographically well-placed for some of our students who live in the immediate area.
While the facilities are scant, the enthusiasm is high. The children seem very happy and healthy at the school. The Head Mistress has arranged for subsidized lunches for all students. Several graduates from this school have scored high enough on their 8th grade exams to go on to good high schools. This re-inforces our learning that the administration and quality teachers are more important than facilities.
