Nambale Magnet School - A Brief History: Reverend Evalyn is the Founder of the Nambale Magnet School (NMS) – Kenya, which is a new outreach mission of the North Congregational Church. In 2007, there was a Woodbury town wide fundraiser to benefit two charities: The Nambale Magnet School through the Cornerstone Project, Inc. and Woodbury Community Services. Since then the Nambale Magnet School continues to grow at a balanced pace. In 2009, it opened up its doors to the first 30 Kindergarten students, and as of January 2013, those children have entered a newly constructed Grade 5
classroom. Today, there are over 200 students (some who have been orphaned by the HIV pandemic).
The Nambale Magnet School mission is to give students a premier education while becoming a self sustaining school. It is evident that the Nambale Magnet School is reaching that goal by students academic scoring and by being a model school that visitors are coming to see to possibly emulate.
