Investing in the Future:
Resources for the Youth and Their Communities.

The MAKENA Center of Champions is an ambitious project aimed at creating vibrant learning environments for children and youth while also fostering leadership, teamwork, and personal development through education and sports. This facility includes modern classrooms and a state-of-the-art sports complex, providing children and youth with the tools, opportunities, and support they need to thrive academically, athletically, and socially.

Key Components

Modern Classrooms

Every child deserves access to a quality education in a safe and inspiring environment. The IVEC School Eldoret constructed at the MAKENA Center of Champions includes well-equipped classrooms with proper infrastructure, including desks, chairs, blackboards, and educational materials. These classrooms will serve as hubs of learning, creativity, and exploration, empowering children to reach their full potential and pursue their dreams.

Sports Complex

In addition to academic excellence, we recognize the importance of physical activity and sports in promoting holistic development. The MAKENA Center of Champions includes the construction of a sports complex featuring facilities for various sports such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, tennis, track and field, and weight training. This complex provides children and youth with a space to engage in recreational activities, develop their athletic abilities, and learn important life skills such as teamwork, discipline, and resilience.

Leadership Development

The MAKENA Center of Champions goes beyond academics and athletics to cultivate leadership skills and character development among youth. Through mentorship programs, leadership workshops, and extracurricular activities, we empower children and youth to become confident, compassionate, and responsible leaders in their schools, communities, and beyond. By instilling values of integrity, empathy, and service, we nurture future leaders who will drive positive change in society. Read their stories.

Fellowship and Community Engagement

Central to our approach is the promotion of fellowship and community engagement. The MAKENA Center of Champions creates opportunities for children to connect with their peers, mentors, and community members through collaborative projects, service initiatives, and cultural exchanges. By fostering a sense of belonging and solidarity, we strengthen social cohesion and create a supportive network that uplifts and empowers every child and youth.
