That Nambale Magnet School(NMS) is a Kenyan-based primary school established in 2009, The school is based in Busia County. a residential school that supports Orphaned and Vulnerable children in rural western Kenya. NMS provides a nurturing environment in which the most destitute of children can access a quality education, thereby breaking the cycle of poverty and hopelessness. Class, social and economic divisions are being bridged as these children learn alongside other local children whose families can afford to pay their own school fees.
