Obwari Academy

Obwari Academy is partnered with Holy Spirit Primary School in the ACT. The school was started by Barnabas Onduso Mogondo because he saw a need for local children to have easier access to school, rather than having to walk a long distance. The school is in rural and remote area, a long way from other infrastructure. The land is fertile, and many local people are subsistence farmers.
The school commenced KCPE examinations in 2009 and has shown a steady improvement.

“I saw children living near me were not getting schooling as it was too far to go. I wanted to provide access to high quality, affordable education, so I started Obwari Academy” Barnabas – school director.

Sponsorship needs:
