Isaiah Nursery & Primary School


Many of Katete’s poorest children are now enjoying an education at Isaiah Nursery & Primary School.

‘Isaiah’ was born in 2013 when Faith and her friend Winnie decided to set up a nursery school. FIACD was able to fund this vision, and in December 2014, a simple two-room school building was opened. The name ‘Isaiah’ was taken from a verse in the book of Isaiah – “See I am doing a new thing…I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland”. This verse was inspirational to Faith whilst shaping her wider vision for her community.

The second, larger building opened on 3 February 2019. Faith Aguha owned the shady land (next to new power lines and water pipes), and FIACD funded the building of the school. Isaiah Nursery & Primary School now has two buildings, and 190 children are enjoying an education, many for the first time.
