The mission of Materi Girl’s Centre and all her community-oriented activities is to strengthen human beings, especially young girls and future mothers, through a holistic approach to education, one fostering academic excellence, sound health care, life-sustaining employment skills, the protection of the environment, and spiritual, moral, psychological and physical growth.
The Centre aims to enhance good citizenship, self-esteem and social justice in an orderly, comprehensive, caring, compassionate and disciplined manner to achieve personal goals and meet the challenging needs of an ever-changing world.
The Centre believes in God’s love, tries to live it, and aims to spread it through dedicated and professional competence, service and practical strategies. All this is done in partnership and collaboration with other interested private and Government institutions both within Kenya and abroad.
Advocacy and concern for the wider Tharakan community — say her roads, health facilities, food supply, job opportunities and overall development — also remain key components of our mission in Tharaka and Kenya. People, especially the young, are quick to recognise discrepancies between espoused values and actual practice, between sweet talk and honest practice. We believe our efforts to advocate Gospel values will bear no fruit if we the teachers and administrators are not credible witnesses to the same. As such, we expect our faculty and instructors to be disciplined and responsible people.
