About Bridge Kenya primary schools

We opened our first school in Mukuru Kwa Njenga in 2009. Today, we run community schools across 30 of 47 counties, providing life-changing education.

Since 2015, tens of thousands of our pupils have excelled in the national primary exit exam (KCPE) and have been awarded places at some of Kenya’s top secondary schools, and also won scholarships to prestigious US high schools. Now, we are very proud to have alumni at Universities in Kenya and Colleges in the US.

Parents say Bridge Kenya is special!

When I came to Bridge my child struggled in school. He could hardly read and write. Since joining it’s like my child is a different person – he has improved so much.


Bridge is the school for performance. You know that if you send your child to Bridge you don’t have to worry. 


Bridge isn’t just good for my child it is also good for me. It has given me so many opportunities to be involved as a parent! 


Bridge Kenya is an education leader and partner: 

For well over a decade, we have been proud to partner with the Kenyan government. We supported the Ministry of Education to develop the APBET guidelines, a pathway to registration for tens of thousands of informal private schools across the country.

We were also a pilot partner in the roll out of the new national Kenyan curriculum.

We are committed to helping achieve United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4: ensuring inclusive and quality education for all. We believe every child in Kenya has the right to a high-quality education. We work in partnership with communities, teachers, and parents to deliver quality education for primary and pre-primary children.

Through our life-changing education, we provide children and their families all across Kenya the gateway to a better future.
