Education Centre

Growing up, I was often sent away from school because I was unable to pay the school fees. God used dedicated teachers and other adult mentors to help raise the funds for me to finish school. My heart is to offer free education for children who would otherwise be unable to attend.

Great Mercy Education Centre has 151 students, ranging from early childhood to high school level. There are 14 teachers, who teach the usual subjects like Math, Science and Swahili, as well as Creative Arts, Christian Religious Education, and Home Sciences (Home Economics).

The students of Great Mercy are encouraged to rise above their circumstances and reach for the stars. One method used in the younger classes is positive reinforcement. When a child answers a question correctly, his or her classmates sing a song for them. You can see that child’s face light up when their classmates sing to them- they feel smart and special.
