Phase one of the project which started last year included renovations and painting of some classes to give them a facelift.
On Tuesday, KICC chief executive officer Ms Nana Gecaga laid the foundation for the phase two of the project which will include construction of classrooms, kitchen, ICT Centre and a library as part of the Corporation’s Social Investment Initiative to support and empower less fortunate children through education.
During the occasion, Ms Gecaga said: “As a corporation we are in support of the government’s effort to offer free education to all and that is our drive to partner with Homes Kenya Limited and other partners both private and public entities to ensure children are learning in a conducive environment not only at Gatina Primary School, but also other schools in Nairobi.”
She added that the corporation will strive to improve the quality of life and contribute to sustainable livelihoods throughout Kenya.
