NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 19 – Centum Investments is set to open its first international school chains in Kiambu in 2017.

The firm which has partnered with Sabis education network says the school will provide students with a top-quality education that prepares them to meet the challenges of a changing world.

Sabis is headquartered in Beirut with a network of schools in 16 countries including the US, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates with a total of 70,000 learners.

Centum plans to launch 20 educational centres across Africa in partnership with Sabis.

Centum Investments Director Chris Kirubi says the schools will heavily impact students with technology.

“Investing in teaching technology to students will not only drive more innovation but will also transform the country’s economy through transforming businesses,” he said.

He says this is part of the firms’ agenda in diversifying its investments.
He urged the government to heavily invest in technology in schools so as to drive the African Innovation Revolution.

Kirubi says though Kenya is headlining innovation in Africa, more need to be done to keep the momentum going.

He was speaking when he handed over about 10 computers to Starehe Boys Centre at his offices which was part of the donation he gave during the school 57th Founders Day.

On his part Starehe Boys Centre Director Matthew Kithyaka says donation will enhance the schools mission of ICT Integration in education and expound on the platform of innovation, technology and creativity.
