MAGNET HIGH SCHOOL
As part of service to the community, Magnet High school was established in 2001. This was after the Rt. Rev. Bishop Jeremiah Kibobi sharing his vision with Aunty Judy Wanjiru, who donated her land and house for the establishment of the school. The bishop had seen the problems facing the children who were from poor families and the orphaned children and the way they had no access to High school education due to poverty and thought to establish a school that would cater for their needs and give them a chance to access High school education.
Our community has a great number of poor families who cannot afford to educate their children in High school and there are also many orphaned children who also have no access to High school education. If these children are left without support, they turn up to be thugs and teen prostitution goes on the increase hence an endangered community. Education is the tool that can lead these vulnerable children break away from poverty and give them a chance of living a better life.
Magnet’s mission is to provide education opportunities to the most vulnerable children and enable them to pursue their dreams. Cycles of poverty, crime, corruption and injustice in the country continue due to lack of education and good leadership. Primary school in Kenya is free, but there are levies charged which in turn tend to be exorbitant for a needy child. However, secondary school (grades 9-12) is not free at all. Without scholarships, students cannot attend secondary schools. Poor and insufficient school infrastructure negatively impact student learning and outcomes. We provide enrichment opportunities that would expose students to developing their unique capacities and discovering their mission. Access to such education facilities posses a great challenge to the school. The capital needs for the students include:- school fees, food, uniform and medical attention. Donors and well wishers are most welcome to support in this noble course of providing a brighter future to this upcoming generation.
