Opened in May 2022, Wide Horizons is a new primary school in the Waithaka area of Nairobi, Kenya. For its first year, the school is enrolling students in pre-primary through grade 3, and then it will add a grade each year. The school aims to bring a good, values-based education to this under-served community, giving students new opportunities and expanding their horizons. Wide Horizons sits high on a peaceful, breezy acre of land in the heart of a bustling area of Waithaka. Classes are currently being held in temporary metal buildings until a permanent structure can be built, and there is plenty of room for the children to play in the secure compound. All the students are given a hot lunch, and for a few, this may be the only hot meal they have that day.
The education at Wide Horizons is based on a strong spiritual foundation of love, honesty, and faithful service to others. Starting and running the school is a labor of love for the Board members and Head Teacher. They all love children and have a desire to serve the community and make the world a better place. Wide Horizons is a family, and children of all faiths are welcome.
