St. Paul’s Secondary School in Marsabit, Kenya was established in 1990 with the intention of providing Christian leadership to local, Catholic young men who in return would provide leadership to the region. Currently, the school has 180 students, ages 14 to 22, enrolled in grades nine through 12. The students come from nomadic communities of northern Kenya, which means they have makeshift homes near churches where women and children settle. Most students are the only ones in their family who have gone to school. The greatest challenge students face in getting an education is paying school fees, in some cases because their parents/guardians are illiterate and do not value education. Fees are about $800 per year, and the church provides a subsidy of $200 per student. St. Paul’s has used recent twinning donations to provide scholarships to students in need, increase security due to local disputes, and improve farming. The school also used donations for its silver jubilee celebration. Its most urgent needs are to financially support students in need, send students on field trips, and purchase furniture and equipment to create a night study space for students who live in poverty-stricken neighborhoods.
