Socialite Akothee Adopts 30 Children A Week After Her Graduation

Celebrated Kenyan socialite and musician Esther Akoth, popularly known as Akothee, has fulfilled her promise made over a year ago. This was to officially launch Akothee Academy’s kindergarten on December 13 and adopt 30 children into the academy.

The academy is set to admit children below the age of five. This will also mark a significant step in Akothee’s commitment to education and community development.

The mother of five expressed her excitement about the project. She stated that the kindergarten classes (PP1 and PP2) are a heartfelt gift to her community.

She also envisions the academy expanding to primary and junior secondary levels soon. This will, therefore, contribute to the educational landscape of the region.

In a social media announcement, Akothee shared her motivation behind the initiative.

“Recognising the need for a safe space for children under 5, I aim to provide mothers with a place where they can entrust their kids while pursuing livelihoods.

“Our commitment is to nurture, educate, entertain, and instill qualities that foster brilliant children with high self-esteem and character development,” she wrote.

The kindergarten is located in Rakwaro Kanyawendo, where the socialite has built her retirement home. Akothee’s philanthropic efforts extend beyond education, as she announced the adoption of 30 children from vulnerable families.

This is under the Akothee Foundation sponsorship programs. Additionally, the mothers of these children have been given employment opportunities to empower them economically.

The kindergarten launch comes in the backdrop of her graduation where she acquired a degree in business management.

The singer explained how she invested in others’ education, only to be met with ingratitude as some claimed superiority over her.
