Kaleo College is a Non-Profit Liberal Arts Institution that started in 2014, with headquarters and main campus in Kahuti, Kangema-Gacharage Road (C70), Murang’a County, and with learning centers in Majimbo – Embu County, Makongo – Makueni County, Kiganjo – Kiambu County, and providing an online platform.

The college was founded in response to various challenges facing Africa including corruption, insecurity, tribalism, political instability, and poor leadership. The underlying issue has been inadequate leadership.

The College Vision is “To be a distinct leadership development institute in East and Central Africa.

The College Mission is thus to “Raise, develop, mentor, equip, and empower servant leaders.

Kaleo College prides itself in being the The Hotbed of Servant Leaders!

The target is to educate, and train effective leaders ready to bring change to worsening governance structures from the grass root level to the highest leadership positions in Africa.

Our graduates become transformation agents within their communities. We have seen our alumni lead national and international ministries and/or organizations effectively with skills obtained at Kaleo.

Our management, faculty, and support staff have proved themselves as transformation agents, and bring on board this experience to train others, who in turn become trainers. We are creating a movement that seeks to empower and equip Servant Leaders for the growth of our continent.

Overview of Kaleo College

Courses offered at Kaleo College



Africa has for long been infested by many vices like corruption, insecurity, wars and tribal crashes, tribalism, political dictatorship, etc. All these are directly related to leadership. Most, if not all, African countries can do far much better if they had good leaders.

However, very few, if any, institutions have risen up to the great task of raising, developing, mentoring, educating and training effective leaders who can take up positions and eventually change the worsening systems, structures and governments.

This is the core of Kaleo College; the key and primary basis for the founding of this great vision. Kaleo was founded to specifically address and meet this important need.

As Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. To accomplish this uphill task, Kaleo targets three groups of people in rural Africa:
