Established in 2005, KGS has a vision of being a Centre for excellence in community empowerment and a mission to enhance the employment prospects of young Maasai, at a time when traditional ways of living are being eroded by land scarcity, climate change and modernization. Plans are underway to relocate the school to a more suitable location in terms of expansion of facilities and improved accessibility.
