MissionStatement for the Neema-Huruma Foundation
The primary mission of the Neema-Huruma Foundation is to provide funding for (a) academic education for young men and women in the Imbirikani area ofKenya, (b) practical theological training for indigenous Pastors and Elders, (c) building churches inKenya, and (d) providing trade school education for young men and women in the area.
At the Neema-Huruma Foundation (Grace & Mercy) we believe in education and work to deliver secondary and post-secondary educational opportunities to disadvantaged young people that are largely from the Maasai tribal people in Southwest Kenya who have few if any educational opportunities for high school or college. Through theImbirikaniGirlsHigh Schooland scholarships for girls at The Presbyterian University of East Africa we engage worldwide partners, volunteers, indigenous people and organizations inKenyain faith-based initiatives that include education, leadership formation, community health, and entrepreneurship.
Our Purpose and History:
The Neema-Huruma Foundation, Inc. is the support arm for the Imbirikani Girls School, HPPC mission trips that include church building in Kenya, vacation bible school, the Christian Growth Seminar, scholarships for needy Imbirikani girls at the Presbyterian University of East Africa (PUES), Lemesusu Primary School, and future projects that include a polytechnic (vocational) school for boys and girls, a small business incubator, and a micro-financing entrepreneur project.
The Imbirikani Girl’s School is a private secondary boarding school (High School) operated by the Presbyterian Church of East Africa that has approximately 300 students. The location of the school is on the Imbirikani Group Ranch of 300,000 acres in the southwest area ofKenyaowned and occupied by the Maasai.
The school was begun in 2004 as a result of a study commissioned by school founders and patrons, Clyde and Betsy Jackson ofDallas,Texas,USA. The school was formed in 2004 and construction started thereafter. In early 2006 the school opened its doors to 40 students in its first phase of construction. Enrollment boomed from the start and two large dormitories, additional classrooms and teacher housing units were built in to accommodate the current population of 300 students and 30 staff.
