Under the country's constitution, every child in Kenya has a right to free and compulsory basic education. It is mandatory for any parent who is a Kenyan or whose child resides in the country to enroll them for primary and secondary education, according to the Basic Education Act of 2013.
The government had shown her commitment in the provision of quality education and training the all Kenyans. In 2003, the Kenyan government introduced Free Primary Education and Free Day Secondary Education in 2008. But the question remains, do we have free education in Kenya? The answer is no as parents need to pay for their primary and secondary children.
In Thika, there is a an NGO secondary school that offers Free Secondary Education. The school is called Dadas Education Centre, a mixed school. It's half day and half boarding school.
The school is owned by an Indian Businessman from the Shah family. The main aim of the school is to help the students who really performs well in academic but have no means to further their education because of the financial problems. It's a total charity school that takes the students all over the country.
The school started in 2020 last year but it's operations were affected by the corona virus. The enrollment is done at the beginning of every first term for the less privileged students , mostly orphans or partial orphans.
Therefore, if you are reading this article, please share it to any group or groups or any person that might have difficulty to pay school fees for their children. The student should be performing well in his/her academic then he will be guaranteed for enrollment in Dadas Education Centre.
