We are excited to announce that the Nehemiah Entrepreneurship Community Investment Fund (formerly known as GKIN) has just approved its third investment this year. The investment went to Mirema School which is based in Nairobi, Kenya. Mirema School is led by CEO, Nina Mutegi, and is a private co-ed day and boarding school that serves over 900 students with more than 100 teachers and administrative staff. The school offers its students a rigorous international academic program, experiential off-campus programs, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
Mirema School Receives Funding from Nehemiah Entrepreneurship Community Investors
Mirema School will receive the first investment of $50K to help the school expand with state-of-the-art facilities and technologies as it prepares to thrive beyond COVID-19. Nina, the 2020 International Biblical Entrepreneurship Business Plan Competition winner, made her pitch to investors at the Entrepreneurship Community Investors Forum during the Global Nehemiah Week Virtual Conference.
Her pitch was well received by investors who were excited about her innovative approach to education that is designed to give Kenyan youth a global advantage and a clear path away from poverty.
To date, the Nehemiah Entrepreneurship Community Investment Fund has invested $2.2 Million in Kingdom Companies in five countries around the world with the goal to invest $25 Million in the next 10 years. This year, despite Covid-19, the Fund invested $73K in three Kingdom companies in Africa (Kenya and DRC Congo) and our goal is to invest an additional $25K before 31 December.
