The Orsoline sisters of the Immaculate Virgin Mary came to Kenya in 1989 and opened a community in Adams Arcade, Nairobi. In 1993 we opened another community in King’eero. Immediately we opened a dress making school and in 1995 a health centre called St. Angela Merici. In 2006 we opened the Kindergarten, which was named Mother Danila. Mother Danila was one of our sisters from Italy who had served as a superior in Eritrea for many years. During her mandate as a superior the Eritrean sisters celebrated 50 years of their presence in the country and as a thanksgiving to God, they decided to open a new mission in Kenya.
When Mother Danila finished her term as a superior in Eritrea in 1993, she came to Kenya and joined the community in Nairobi. Unfortunately, in December 1995 she had a fatal road accident and lost her life. When we opened the Kindergarten in 2006 we named it after her in her honour. In 2015, we opened a primary school as a continuation of the kindergarten. So far we run a Kindergarten, a primary school and a health centre. The health centre and the kindergarten are in the same compound at King’eero while the primary school is in a neighbouring village called Mararo.
