Overview

Dr. Odede was passionate about education as a cornerstone of community development. He personally sponsored over 150 individuals through primary, secondary and college education.

As a long term commitment to the community this foundation has donated the use of its facilities at no profit including:
  • Building sites
  • Boreholes for water supply
  • Electricity
  • Generators

​Projects

One of the major goals of this foundation is to set up quality education facilities for the community. We aim to improve on the  standard of education and set yearly targets on average grades and number of graduates at every level.

Rinya Academy

Rinya Academy is a 'not for profit'  primary school started in 2011 by the Odede family and is operational to this day. It was founded with a small financial donation of $1000 and the conversion of the east wing of the former hospital to classrooms.
The education facility now provides decent education and food to the under-privileged children of the community.

The buildings offered by this foudation are functional however require renovation work  to provide a safer and healthier learning environment for the pupils.

School fees are extremely low but are still a struggle for many families.  Due to the family struggles funding the school is a challenge and other sources of income are required to subsidise it. Often a smart child is forced to stop coming to school, or come sporadically due to lack of money for fees.  The schools give some leeway to students struggling to pay fees but in the end the school needs money to continue.

Your donation will be used to provide scholarships, books, library, laboratories and much needed building renovations.

Manyatta High School

Manyatta School which later became  Manyatta High School is a part county government , part commuinty sponsored secondary school the serves the wider community. It was originally started by Dr. Odede's father Samuel Maende Odede and later steered by Dr. Odede after being elected as chairman of the board. 
Dr Odede was the Chairman of the board in Manyatta High School until his passing away in 2016.​

This education facility currently provides secondary school education however the number of pupils who qualify for further University/College education are very low due to financial hardship and a lack of facilities.

Your donation will be used to provide scholarships, books, library, laboratories and much needed building renovations.
