We are transforming primary education in rural Kenya.

By partnering with communities, educators and government leaders, we are building the capacity of public schools to improve student outcomes.

The Flying Kites
School Network

In partnership with the Kenyan Ministry of Education and The Dignitas Project, we support a network of five resource-poor primary schools with our intensive Teacher Training Institute, equipping teachers in rural Kenya with the support they need to facilitate learning and literacy in their classrooms.

The
Flying Kites Academy

Our Academy is a top-performing school in a region where access to a basic education is not guaranteed. A model school and hub for our community of educators, we pilot interventions at the Flying Kites Academy that form the basis of our work within our Network of Schools.

After years of dreaming and planning, we constructed the Charles Wickham Academic Center, a multipurpose building that includes 7 classrooms, a science and computer lab, and a brand new home for our Teacher Training Institute.
