The Full Story

About The School

The school will serve 500 students. There will be two classes for every grade. Inspiration Academy will be a kindergarten through eighth grade school. 

The Inspiration Academy Project

We finished funding the construction of Inspiration Academy! Starfish International aims to create equitable, achievable, and accessible education. That is what a public school does. Inspiration Academy will end the cycle of poverty one student at a time. Let's build a school together!


Inspiration Academy

Inspiration Academy will educate children and adults alike. There will be classes to learn trades and health care. This school will be built on three plots of land. Starfish International has purchased the plots, and we raised funds for the construction. There will be five classrooms, holding thirty students. This will be a building with five floors, an amphitheater, and a rooftop used as a playground. We will have two bathrooms on each floor.


In Mathare, there is no space to be heard. The plots of land that Starfish International has purchased are slanted. We are going to use that to our advantage and construct an amphitheater based on the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. This will be a place to teach community classes, witness the talent that those in Mathare have, and be a community space. 


First level

Starfish International will provide lunch for every student. This means that the first floor requires a kitchen and a hall for the students to eat. There will also be an elevator and stairs that will reach every floor. 


Second through Fifth Floor

Each floor will have two bathrooms and five classrooms. Each classroom will hold thirty students.
