Pokot

The Pokot School Project is a collaboration between the communities of Upper Beeding and Chemekeu in West Pokot, Kenya. Through the Hindson family who lived in Pokot for 6 years in the 90's, the Baptist Church and Primary School of Upper Beeding have come together to focus on the educational needs of this remote, semi-nomadic community in NW Kenya.

A Pokot Christian group called PCM, with whom the Hindsons had worked, managed a small mud-walled primary school which housed 100 children and was in desperate need of rebuilding. The Pokot School Project was born and our school and church here in Upper Beeding raised over £15,000 to build a new school with 6 classrooms.
