Molibany Primary School, located in the town of Talek, Kenya, is home to approximately 440 students in grades 1-8 who live in the local community. Talek is adjacent to the world famous Masai Mara National Reserve, home to Africa’s Big 5 (lion, leopard, elephant, cape buffalo and rhino) and to the annual migration of more than 1,500,000 wildebeest and zebra. The community is a vital resource for the Reserve and its wildlife.
The school was comprised of two existing classroom buildings and a third makeshift building serving as a classroom. As a result of the growing student population, the school had run out of space and desks and the current facilities were inadequate. Students in the makeshift building sat on concrete floors because there weren’t enough desks. In the classrooms with desks, there were often two students sitting at a desk designed for one.

The new building includes four classrooms, a library, a teacher’s room, a head teacher’s office and a headmaster’s office. Each classroom is outfitted with enough desks for all the students.
We donated $55,000 for the construction of a new administration building consisting of 4 classrooms and 3 offices. The grand opening the new building was held in October 2018.
Generous support from people like you allowed us to build this school.
