Emarti School Project

Airkenya proudly handed over two new classrooms and a two bedroom Staff House to the Emarti Primary School in the Masai Mara on 25th February 2013 having made good its promise for the first phase of the building of Emarti Primary School, at a cost of Kenya Shillings 10million.

Airkenya General Manager, Capt Dino Bisleti in his speech during the handing over ceremony said he  "was proud to have completed the first phase of the school”, whilst pledging future support he said he also "hoped to see children out of Emarti School come for employment with Airkenya and to fly our aircraft”.
The Mara District Education officers thanked Airkenya "for  the quality of the classrooms built and indicated this should encourage performance and enrollment in the school”. Airkenya made the decision that the most beneficial corporate socially responsible project would be education.  Indeed, to uplift the livelihood of people and to safeguard the environment, education was the single most important facet.  The Masai Mara is Airkenya's flagship destination with three flights daily it was an obvious choice for the school.

The school which will eventually have boarding facilities, dining/school hall plus new classrooms for standards 1 – 8 and a Nursery School is a long term project for Airkenya with a total cost of not less than US$1.5million.
