Our Napuu center is located in Turkana County in northwestern Kenya, near the town of Lodwar. It was the first MOHI center opened in a rural area outside of greater Nairobi. The center serves one of the most marginalized communities in Kenya, the Turkana people.
The Napuu center opened in January of 2013 with 320 students. The official launch ceremony in late February provided an opportunity for community leaders, government agencies, and MOHI staff and partners to mark the occasion and look forward to a much brighter future for the children and families in the area. By March, the number of students had already grown to 480.
