Uzimatele Educational Center- Go Near Ministry partners with Pastor George Otieno in supporting this Christian primary school in Gituamba slums. It is strategically located adjacent to a Muslim training center to counter Islamic infiltration. The larger white & green building in the photo below is the Muslim training school.
The majority of residents in Gituamba slums were displaced and live in extreme poverty without safe and affordable options for primary education. Most are female-led homes.
Go Near Ministry helps fund school room construction, teacher salaries and the school feeding program. This may be only meal children have for the day. As a result of adding a nutritious lunch 100 children are in school. New classrooms are being built every year.
A hearty, nutritious meal for our students is cooked on site everyday.
Good to the last drop
Uzimatele children LOVE their visitors and are eager to greet you
“My experience with the kids at Uzimatele has forever changed my life and completely provided revelation in my heart in ways I never would have imagined! The joy in the hearts of these kids inspired me to desire a more thankful heart towards my heavenly Father. Playing with these kids helped me gain an understanding of how God feels about me as His child! I will absolutely be back in the future to once again partner with the Lord in showing these kids His love! God is moving here and it’s wonderful to see!” Corbin- Blue Sky counselor
Our teams bring donated supplies from our community to share with school children in Kenya. Uzimatele students receive their own full size pencil and large notebook. This is a first and a BIG treat.
Teaching can be fun. LRCA students make alphabet charts and teach in creative ways at Uzimatele school.
