Little Prince Nursery and Primary School

Nairobi,Kenya

The Little Prince Nursery and Primary School was set up to provide a holistic education to the underprivileged, and rehabilitate street children from the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya. Since 2014 the Emirates Airline Foundation sponsors the meals programme at the school.

The meals programme is considered the second most important service the school offers to the pupils after education, because given the economic hardships in the slum, many cannot afford to have three meals a day.

The feeding program since its inception has contributed to consistency in the attendance of the students which in turn has recorded great improvement in their academic performance. This also stems from the fact a child who is well fed is able to concentrate more on their studies and not worry about food. For some of these children, the school’s porridge and lunches are the only meals they receive.

Little Prince Nursery and Primary School

The Little Prince School began in 2000 initially as a remedial centre, with seven children and one teacher, who were hosted in two classes in a school run by catholic brothers of St Charles Lwanga in Gatwekera in Kibera slum. The one room remedial class eventually grew into a complete formal school .

As the school grew there was need for more space to allow for future development. An expanded school was completed in 2005. The school has eight classrooms, a kitchen, dining hall, a theatre and administrative offices. A preschool section began in 2007. It includes the baby class and the nursery. Upgraded facilities at the preschool unit were inaugurated in March 2010.
