Meeting practical needs

In some areas 90% of the population is illiterate. Young people desperately need practical help to bring new skills to their communities. READ MORE

Meeting educational needs

Kisima Secondary School, a free residential school for 160 boys and girls aged between 14 and 18 years mainly from northern Kenya. READ MORE

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

Alumni Visit

Feb 2021

We were recently happy to have a visit from three of our former students, who came to bring some gifts for the school from the alumni association. We are so grateful to them for the soap, sanitizer and face masks plus some biscuits and sweets (guess which items the current students were most excited about?! 😀)

Kenyan schools reopened!

Jan 2021

Schools in Kenya have now reopened for all classes and we welcomed our students back on Sunday 3rd January. The Form Fours were returning after a short Christmas holiday, and the other classes after nine and a half months at home!
Now that all classes have returned, it is not possible for the students to maintain social distancing much of the time – something that the Ministry of Education has acknowledged to be true for all schools. Instead we are relying on face masks, regular hand-washing and other cleaning as COVID-protection measures.
Teachers and students alike are working extra hard so as to make up for the lost time, and we send our thanks to everyone who has supported the school during these challenging times.
