|Inaugural Class - 2005|
Students return to school at howFar's Jipe Primary School, located near Mount Kilimanjaro, Kenya on January 7th. The school, for semi-nomadic Maasai children, opened in 2005 with 60 students in pre-K and Primary One. On January 7th the school began its 8th year with over 300 students attending grades pre-K through Primary 8. Last year Jipe Primary School finished 1st in the District.
|Students at howFar's Lake Jipe Primary - 2010|
Only approximately 15% of Maasai children attend primary school and very few attend secondary school.
Our goal is to establish Jipe Secondary School on the howFar compound so that our students can continue their education.
howFar will you go to help these Maasai children escape the cycle of poverty through education?
