Rainbow Academy

Rainbow Academy was birthed out of a need for a school that would give Sunbeam children the best education possible. The name comes from the story of Noah and the sign of God’s faithfulness – a rainbow. We now have our school registered in Kenya as a primary school with over 170 pupils and we currently employ 11 qualified teachers and a classroom assistant.

Our classes are currently equivalent to what would be our P1-P8 classes here, with plans to increase on a yearly basis to accommodate the children’s development and needs. This year our children got new uniforms and a PE kit with a new school emblem. Our children in the school from the community get their breakfast and lunch each day. We also have an nursery school from baby class to pre-primary.

At the beginning, classrooms were held in mud huts. From January 2014 they moved to our newly completed Life Centre, where they will remain until we are able to build a purpose-built school. We encourage all children to be involved in outdoor activities like football and netball, choir and drama.

We have a few children from Sunbeam that originally attended the government school but due to their disabilities we were told these children would never learn or be able to read or write.  Again we see the hand of God and after attending Rainbow for one year, they are able to both read and write and sit the National Exam. We believe that with God all things are possible and everyone person is special to Him and have a place and purpose in life. Our aim is to encourage and bring the best out in each child treating them as individuals by giving them encouragement and love.

We, of course, have needs such as proper desks and chairs, new classrooms, and extra funds to employ more teachers. Within our ministry, it is possible to give a one-off donation to Rainbows Academy or set up a standing order which would be of great assistance.

We now have 4 children who have graduated the Rainbow Academy and have moved on to Secondary Boarding school.

If you have a burden or interest in the Education side of our Ministry, contact our Secretary for more details.
