Early 2017 Kibet4Kids finished its project in Kolol. With the help of many generous donations, we were able to construct a public primary school – something the whole community is proud of. At the moment the school has 207 pupils, who all receive good quality education for free. Many generations of children are going to benefit from this. Kibet4Kids started this project in Kolol (Kenya) in 2013, with the aim to deliver good quality education to the children of this...

They have a staff of 14 qualified teachers, who are specially trained to work with these children. Mindililwo is a school that is running well and is...

The library of Kessup Public Primary school was renovated by Kibet4Kids. As you can read on this page, in a message from earlier this year, Kibet4Kids received a donation from RobVeer.com, which was specifically meant for Kessup Primary School. The library of Kessup was in a very bad condition. The roof was about to fall down and the place was too dangerous for the pupils to use. Our contractor went there and renovated the library for a total amount of 130.000 Ksh (about...

On September 12, all children from Kolol Primary school classes 1-4 (65 kids in total) went on a tour. During the course of this year, we got the idea to do something special for the children. It's great to have new classrooms, books, etcetera, but it's still school. It's good for the future of the children, but it's all serious stuff. Besides that, we realized that almost non of the children had ever been outside Kolol. The families just don't have the money to pay for a...

In July and August Kibet4Kids kept working hard to improve education in the Kenyan country side. We finished the construction of the second classroom.

Apart from that we made a sign board for the school, in cooperation with the board of directors (see picture). Up to now the name of the...
