Limuru is a town twenty miles north of Nairobi. It is a beautiful tea growing area on the edge of the Rift Valley.
The Karibuni partner project there is the Limuru Methodist Academy, where children are drawn from the Misri slum, an area of real deprivation. Karibuni supports a number of children at the school, which, although fee-paying, provides the only walkable school option for a number of children. In addition, Karibuni supports the project to provide meals for all children and contributes to the cost of cooks and caretakers, ensuring that all children in the community can access a balanced and nutritious meal, alongside pastoral support from the part-time social worker Miriam.
Karibuni has also supported this partner project to improve its infrastructure. In August 2015, through generous donations from supporters and trusts, Karibuni funded the building of four new classrooms for the older primary school pupils. Materials recycled from the old classrooms were used to build a school office and a staff room. In 2019, again through generous donations, various ramshackle buildings were replaced with four new classrooms.
Since then school headcount has increased to approaching 240, with the school seeing steadily improving results at KCPE (Kenya Certificate of Primary Education).
