St Elizabeth Kamuthi started as a girl’s center in the year 2001 (by then it was called God with Us Children Centre ) with a population of 36 children. It was started as an informal education Centre since several children were not able to attend primary schools due to financial constraints and high expenses. The Centre was not registered at that time. The shelter structure was made of iron sheets whilst Jerri cans and paint containers served as chairs.
In the year 2002, The Office of the President of Kenya introduced free primary school education. The majority of the children enrolled in school while the younger ones remained in the kindergarten class.
National Aid Control Council (NACC) began a food program for the Centre.
The director of God with Us Children Centre, Mary Waithera Mungai rented two stone-structured rooms where learning took place from the year 2002 to 2004.

and wooden poles. The children continued learning in the two rooms despite having a dusted floor.

Beatrice, a house help from Kiambu listened to the broadcast and contacted the director about living in the center.
She talked to her employers who let her leave for the children’s home. Beatrice’s employers approached a contact from Texas. Her name was Mary Tobin of The Sisters of Mary Ward from Bomas of Kenya. Mary Tobin then spearheaded fundraising for young women’s education. The proceeds from the fundraising enabled the building of a secondary school, ST ELIZABETH KAMUTHI GIRLS SECONDARY SCHOOL. The school supports the class 8 graduates who miss out on secondary school placement.
National Aid Control Council (NACC) continued supporting the school by providing the school with desks, books, uniforms, and foodstuffs for a period of six months. Later, a non-profit organization called Slovakia Mission approached the school in the year 2009. It provided foodstuffs for the school from 2009 to 2013. Moreover, Slovakia Mission supported the education of twenty-one secondary school girls from form 1 to form 3.
By the year 2009, the school had taken care of 149 children, the majority of the girls and a few boys. From then until now, the school has been supported by Kenyan well-wishers, among them the youth, families, churches, schools, companies, small business owners, other non-profit organizations, and individuals. These short-term supporters provide the school with food, stationery, clothes, and school uniforms.

The Principal’s Office
Our school provides a wide array of clubs and societies to develop individual student interests and abilities. The journalism club is one of the active clubs in our school. The club not only plays a crucial part in enabling students to access news and information within the school but also acts as media for all information outside the school and worldwide. The club gives students the opportunity to exercise their freedom of expression. The club has a patron who acts as a consultant and works closely with the club members to achieve the goals of the club. The consistency in great work being done by the club has attracted more students, especially the new students in joining the club. Thanks to the school administration for giving the club full support in its endeavors. We thank God for the far He has moved journalism and we are optimistic for great things in the future because we trust in God and in Him all are possible. Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.
Discipline and performance are the key areas of the deputy’s office. We make every student valuable by instilling good morals and all-around competencies that will propel them to achieve educational goals. The deputy principal constantly communicates behavioral expectations to the students at assembly and develops appropriate intervention measures in order to curb indiscipline among students. Furthermore, the office harnesses staff members’ energy in promoting disciplinary standards. I believe that discipline is directly linked y academic performance hence enhancing strict time management and adherence to our daily routine.
