WELCOME TO CHERISH school Learn More

A little about your partner school...

Cherish School was set up in 2009 by Moses Kombo in Nakuru, Kenya to provide a free education and daily meal to children from the local area.

Without community-run projects such as Cherish School, it is unlikely that these children would receive an education at all, due to the costs of items such as uniforms, desks and textbooks that come with attending a government-run school.

Today, Cherish provides a free education and feeding programme to around 120 children between the ages of four and 16. There are eight classrooms and six teachers at the school.

How your partnership works

We’re so excited to welcome you on board as a partner school – and we hope you’re excited, too!

We’ll facilitate half-termly exchanges of pen pal letters between your students and those at Cherish School, and bring you the latest news from your partner school.

On this page, you’ll also find educational resources, fundraising inspiration and an image gallery to help your students learn about life at your partner school and education around the world.

Finally, at the bottom of the page, you’ll find the contact details for our Partnerships Managers – feel free to get in touch if you have any questions!
