The Educational Frontier Trust (TEFT) is a UK registered charity providing funding for the educational needs of marginalised and vulnerable children in Kenya.

What We Do

TEFT supports a Kenyan charity, the Kisima Trust, and its educational project Kisima School which works with communities mainly in northern Kenya, in particular pastoralist communities.

Northern Kenya is a marginalised region affected by recurrent drought, banditry and violent conflict and has virtually no public services. High percentages of the traditional pastoralist communities are illiterate and many now depend on relief aid for survival.

Kisima School selects children from these communities on the basis of need and potential and gives them the opportunity to transform their lives through academic achievement. A secondary education and the chance to progress to university offers these children new skills and training that can change their lives and bring new life to their families and communities.

Kisima School

Visit the Kisima website

10 teachers teach the Kenyan national curriculum to 160 children, 80 boys and 80 girls. The students sit the Kenyan Certificate of Secondary Education in their fourth and final year. Their results determine whether they progress to university or other colleges and levels of government financial support.

Kisima School is located on a five acre site at Nyahururu, approximately 240km northwest of Nairobi. The school site includes classrooms, staff rooms, a dining room (which also doubles as the school hall), kitchens, dormitories, a games field and teachers’ accommodation. Vegetables for the school kitchen are grown in a large greenhouse and all other available space around the buildings. Goats are also kept near the games field. Watch the film

Kisima students head home due to Coronavirus

March 2020

The Kisima students all headed home on 17th March, following the president's directive that schools must close as coronavirus has been confirmed in the country.

Before they left the Form 4 Agriculture students worked hard so as to leave their assessed project - which this year is to establish a tree nursery - in a good state. Agriculture teacher Evans and school gardener Gitonga will be keeping an eye on the tree seedlings while the students are away.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all our supporters and friends, especially those in countries badly hit by coronavirus.
