Project Profile

Brown Hill Group is a registered community-based organization, established in the year 2013 to offer community services to the residents of Embakasi. After its registration, the group immediately embarked on running an education facility that best suits the interest of its community members.

The group undertook the setting up of a secondary school that would enhance the quality of education offered in Kayole estate, and improve the transition rate of students joining public universities. The project started in 2012 with only 4 students. Since then, the institution has grown with total admissions reaching over 80 students after only a year in operation. In addition to the academic objectives, the school aims at nurturing of talents to some former school dropout teenagers. As a result, the school football team became Embakasi District champions and proceeded to Nairobi County games. The students are aged between 15 to 18 years.
