The nearest public primary school is located 2 km away, but the quality of education in the government run school is inferior to this burgeoning community run Christian school.

Yogo Primary school provides an excellent Christian education from toddler (JK) to Grade 8. The school consistently ranks first in the area and in the top five in the region for educational results. Many of the students who attend Yogo GCA are from the poorest families and cannot afford tuition costs.

The answer was to start a school farm where the parents of project students could volunteer time to help raise crops that will feed the children and be marketed to provide enough profit to cover the operating costs of the school.

Both the farm and the school are growing and thanks to generous donations from western groups the infrastructure has been able to (mostly) keep up with the incredible growth of this school.

Raising the bar

Despite covid restrictions, economic downturns, drought and supply shortages, the 2022 Class 8 students of Yogo Glory Centre Academy managed to raise the bar, achieving 344.74 on the KCPE exams, up from last years school mark of 340.30. The board and staff are so proud of the efforts the students made in these extra ordinary days, and of the staff that invested so deeply into them.

Working out the planning continues for the new Admin/library building to be constructed in the 2022 school year. Also, slated for construction is a long-awaited steel sheet dorm for the girls. This will move them out of the overcrowded classroom space where they are currently located.

The 2022 school year begins April 25 and students are excited to get back to class after their long break. Staff and board are being challenged by these days of inflation and constraint and trying to plan out how they will manage the year and continue with their high standards.
