In January 2004, Sunrise of Africa School opened its nursery
school with 6 children. Today, only 18 months later, there are
over 30 children attending! All the children attend the Christian
Science Sunday School and many parents, too, attend services
at the Christian Science Society, which was formed on the school
premises in western Nairobi.
Sunrise began with three different nursery groups and added Class
One in January. In order to accommodate all the children who
want to attend, the school has purchased 5 acres of land on the
outskirts of Nairobi and plans to design and build its own facility.
The teachers and supporters of the school all realize that it
is Christian Science that is making the difference in their students’ lives
and in the community. As one teacher said, “Our progress
in Christian Science has really changed things. It is really
building our lives.”

Board of Sunrise of Africa School prays to know that our
Christian Science School is a complete idea in
have been praying and working conscientiously to find the
right premises for the School in an area which is
open to all Kenyans.
In January 2004, at the commencement of our School to the
present time, we have been renting premises
(pictures of which are on this website). Waithaka, a
Nairobi suburb, is mainly a Kikuyu area, although other tribes
live there. Kenya is still fairly tribal.
Christian Science was new to the area, we advertised the
offering good education, based on Christian
the application forms, showing the religions of the
parents, and interviews with the parents, we were able to
which were/are the appropriate applicants. We then
started a Christian
Science Society and Sunday School on the premises and
we invited all parents and children to attend. Our
Nursery School now has
over 30 children. All of them, together with brothers
sisters, attend our overflowing Christian Science Sunday
approx 50 children. Many of the parents now attend
our Christian Science Society, numbering often 30 attendants.
This is after
about 17 months from inception!!
Christian Science Society and Sunday School are firmly established
and will continue,
we move our School
from this area to our new site.
will follow the policy as used in our current Sunrise of
Africa Nursery school,
and Sunday School,
in Waithaka. Christian Science was little known
in that area. And now C.S. is thriving there, with much
will do the same in Kitengele. We will start a
Christian Science Society and start Church services and a
School. By the
time, we have built some class rooms and are ready
to start our new Sunrise of Africa School in the
Christian Science. Gradually Christian Science
will become established in the area.
