Kaleo College has had two graduation ceremonies in 2016 and 2017, which has seen about 38 students graduate with a Certificate in Theological Studies, with students from Murang’a, Mombasa, Migori, Makueni, Kitui, and Machakos Counties. The first graduation was graced by Hon. Gerishon N. Reuben, the Minister for Education in Murang’a County. In his keynote address, Hon. Reuben hailed the initiative of Kaleo College, which is one of its kind to be started in the Kangema region. He added that the Murang’a County Government is keen on improving the livelihoods of the locals by focusing on key development areas which include education. In line with this, the County Government would partner with the College on viable areas such as offering mentorship programs which have already been commenced. He further urged the locals to support the initiative noting that education is a valuable asset to invest in.
The College, which started off as a Bible Institute has now grown to offer various disciplines, becoming an accredited TVETA institution, and KNEC Examination Center. Bishop Carl Phillip Kihato, noted in a keynote speech that “Kaleo’s aim has been to make education affordable, and we are proud to say that we have achieved this having been able to fully sponsor all the students who have trained at our institution since 2014” to date.
Kaleo College was born under the vision of giving back to the society. The college has continued to offer sponsored learning, and even as it transits into paid-for learning, it retains the model of affordable education, will continue to offer sponsorships to best performing students. The college also gives sponsorship to best performing primary and secondary school students in neighbouring school cluster as a means to boost their ability to further their education, especially in cases where such students come from a needy home.
The Vision of the College is “To be the best Leadership Development Institute in East and Central Africa” and the Mission is “To raise, develop, mentor, equip and empower servant leaders.”
In its efforts to expand its Mission, the College has established a campus in Kahuti, Kahuro, Muranga’a County along Kangema-Gacharage Road, and Satellites campuses in Embu Town and Juja, in Nairobi. The College is now offering Certificates and Diplomas in Theological Studies, Community Development, Social Work, Information Technology, Business Administration, and Public Administration.
