Nova Pioneer Tatu City has been nominated in the Innovation category, while the Kakenya Center for Excellence in Enoosaen, Rift Valley, has been recognized for its remarkable Community Collaboration initiatives.

Established by T4 Education in partnership with Accenture, American Express, and the Lemann Foundation, these awards are highly esteemed within the global education community. Winners will share a prize fund of Sh6.4 million ($50,000), selected by an expert judging panel.

The Kakenya Center for Excellence, a government-funded boarding school focused on empowering girls through education and leadership, has been lauded for its efforts to combat harmful cultural practices like female genital mutilation (FGM). This nomination highlights the school’s significant impact on the community.

Nova Pioneer Tatu City has earned recognition for its dedication to fostering leadership and innovation skills among students, preparing them to shape the future. Both schools are among the Top 10 finalists in their respective categories.

The World’s Best School Prizes, launched in 2022 in response to the challenges of COVID-19, aim to celebrate schools that make a significant impact within and beyond their classrooms. All 50 shortlisted schools participate in a public vote on the T4 Education website, with the most-voted school receiving the Community Choice Award and membership in T4 Education’s Best School to Work program.
