The Rainbow House Kenya
In May 2017 a major local secondary school called St Francis Academy closed without notice leaving 17 children from Rainbow House without a school to attend during middle of the academic year. Rainbow House was already operating a pre-school. Soon after St Francis announces closure parents and teachers visited Rainbow House to meet our newly appointed manager, Madam Terry, formerly academic head of St Francis before taking over at Rainbow House. We were given an assurance that 88 children and staff selected by Rainbow House would attend if we could built new classrooms in time for May 2018 start.
About Rainbow House
A donation from The Mews Practice in Surrey enabled Rainbow House to build 5 classrooms. Since opening we now have a total of approximately 225 students including pre school. We are already under pressure for space and have had to turn the library building into a classroom. We do not now have to pay for educational costs for our primary school children and now have the chance to see excellent results as we employ the best teachers.
The Mews Practice are privileged to sponsor The Rainbow House Charity in Kenya. The dedication and energy by the team has been paramount to its success in supporting and nurturing those in underprivileged environments. Watching these young lives achieve their potential is a blessing. The Mews Practice has donated 5 class rooms to help the great work done by the founder Lynda Ferrin.
