Kenya (Mikameni)

Hosanna Gardens Academy (HGA)

INTRODUCTION

 

Hosanna Gardens Academy (HGA) is a co-educational school, providing a caring and comprehensive education for students in Mikameni, Kenya.

 

HGA values the unity of vision and lifestyle that a partnership between church, home and school offers to students. We recognize that we are members of the body of Christ and as such, should shoulder the responsibility of Christian education together.

 

The teachers at HGA are a dedicated group who desire to be faithful Christian role models, dedicated to helping each child’s spiritual, intellectual, physical, social progress.

 

 

BACKGROUND

 

HGA was founded in 2015 as a response to the urgent plea of Good Foundation Kenya, regarding the extremely poor school environment in the village of Mikameni, Kenya.

 

Mikameni is a small remote village approximately 800km north east of Nairobi. As such, it only has one primary school, Mwina Primary School. However in 2013, following a teacher’s demonstration the school closed down for a prolonged period and was left abandoned and in disarray.

 

At the end of 2013, an urgent request was made to Sydney Hosanna to visit Mikameni and to see what help they could provide. During their visit, Sydney Hosanna saw the critical need for a new school, to give the children of Mikameni the opportunity to receive a quality education and the hope of a brighter future. On their return, Sydney Hosanna was determined to respond to the urgent request. This is how the HGA project started.

 

In February 2014, HGA project phase 1 started with the goal to start a school with only the bare necessities, in order to help transition the existing Kindergarten students to Year 1 in 2015. After this target of phase 1 was successfully met on 31 January 2015, Hosanna Gardens Academy (HGA) was officially opened with its first full intake of 29 students ranging from Kindergarten 1 – 3 and Standard 1.
