Loldia School Fund

Philanthropy Plus supports the work of the Loldia School Fund

Loldia School Fund Kenya 2.jpg

The Loldia School Fund was set up as a registered charity in order to support and improve educational facilities and sponsorship for both pupils and teachers.

From the young to the much older, Loldia has a nursery, primary and secondary school and the fund also runs educational programs and remedial classes for adults who have either never received any education or had to take a break in their youth.

Loldia Primary School is situated on the edge of Kenya’s historic Rift Valley, overlooking Lake Naivasha. The pupils’ families mainly live in the village of Kasarani, adjacent to the school and serving expanding horticultural farms. Living conditions in the village are very poor, housing is overcrowded and community facilities are scarce. 

The farm had a small simple mud and wattle farm school serving the children of the area.

Contributions from Philanthropy Plus have helped to try and improve the school and its facilities. Peter Njoroge Loldia House’s former manager started to introduce guests to the school and inspire them to get involved and help improve the facilities of the school. Together with Peter they formed the Loldia School Fund and set to work to raise funds needed.

From its start on a mud floored wooden church, the nursery school has blossomed and in the past few years funds where raised to fund the building of three classrooms complete with the right sized furniture. They have their own play area and even have an annual sports day.  

To date the school has been completely rebuilt, making it one of the best schools in the region. Scholarships have been offered to primary school leavers to attend secondary school, and some of the brighter students have gone on to Universities in Kenya and South Africa.

The school also serves the wider community offering evening adult literacy classes and a kindergarten.

Philanthropy Plus supports the work of the Loldia School Fund which is helping provide a standard of education that enables the children attending to better their circumstances and find a way out of the poverty that exists in this area of Kenya.

You can find out more about Loldia School on the Trust for African Schools website. If you would like to visit the Loldia school (only possible during school term time), this can be arranged with the manager at Loldia House.
