On July 28th 2021Medical Mission Sisters in Ang’iya, Kenya opened its doors to the Anna Dengel Education Centre for the first time. Medical Mission Sisters run the Ang’iya Primary Health Care Dispensary which includes prevention, maternity services, mother and child health, HIV/AIDS program, curative and outreach services. They now have extended their healing presence to respond to the local community’s request for a school. It is difficult for very young children in the area to walk three kilometers and cross several rivers to reach the nearest school. The school has three areas of learning. A play group is comprised of beginners who never went to school before, Pre-primary One and Pre-primary Two. The Sisters and Novices who help in the school are excited about this new venture. Their goal is to help these children acquire a quality and holistic foundational education.
