Education as part of the development of the person is very much part of the mission of the church. Caritas Ngong education programme has taken this very seriously since its inception. The education program is growing very fast, many church owned schools both primary and secondary are coming up in our parishes and number of catholic sponsored schools is also increasing due to the confidence the community has with the church.
