ACOHF funds approximately 40 students at Rubate Secondary School each year. We begin supporting students in Form 1 and continue through Form 4 and high school graduation.
After enduring the crowded, polluted and dangerous environment in Nairobi’s urban slums, students appreciate the peaceful atmosphere of this rural area near Mt. Kenya. They describe it as having “good air and enough space” and “a calm environment for studying.”
