Finlays Community Trust is pleased to have played a role in resolving the classroom shortage at Simoti Mixed Secondary School. The Trust has commissioned two newly constructed modern classrooms at the school located in Mogogosiek Ward, Konoin Sub-County, Bomet County. The classrooms were constructed at a cost of Kshs. 4.5 million with a provision to allow for additional two floors on top. The two classrooms can accommodate more than 90 students per session. This is in line with the Kenya government’s policy of upgrading infrastructure in learning institutions to boost the implementation of the Competence Base Curriculum.
Classrooms are essential for teaching and learning. They provide opportunities for learning, support literacy and education for students, and, most importantly, aid in the formation of new ideas and perspectives that are critical to the development of the next generation.
The infrastructure projects are part of the Trust’s long-term commitment to partner with local communities and nurture sustainable growth in Kericho and Bomet counties. Speaking during the commissioning of two standard classrooms at Simoti Mixed Secondary School, Finlays Community Trust Board member, Sammy Kirui said,
“Education remains a cornerstone of our focus areas at the Trust, and we remain committed to work hand-in-hand with the local community to identify and address areas that necessitate our support. By enhancing the quality of learning, these initiatives play a vital role in fulfilling the educational aspirations of students in both counties.”
“The Trust has also invested in a mentorship program to support students in developing their skills and advancing their careers. Building a more conducive learning environment will help to improve student outcomes and provide the necessary tools to build a stronger education framework in the two counties,” he added.
For over a decade, the Trust has invested over Ksh 250 million in pivotal infrastructure initiatives, transforming the lives of communities in Kericho and Bomet Counties. Some of the notable infrastructure projects include the construction of Chemasinge Secondary School at the cost of Kshs 101 million, 18 laboratories, 13 classrooms, 11 libraries, and 3 dining halls among others in the two counties.
At Finlays Community Trust, we believe that investing in our children’s education today has a better return on investment for the community and society as a whole in future.
Present during the commissioning of the two classrooms were Konoin MP Hon. Brighton Yegon, area MCA Mr Ernest Kipkemoi, Ministry of Education Officials, FCT Trustees, the school’s management, and parents, among other invited guests.
