Makini School, initially known as Riara Gardens Academy, was founded in 1978 by Mary Okelo and her late husband, Pius Okelo, with a mere eight children in a colonial bungalow. Over time, it blossomed, leading to its rebranding as Makini Schools in 1981.
Okelo made close to KSh1 billion in 2018 by selling a 71% stake in the schools to two overseas investors. There were more than 3,200 pupils enrolled at the time.

The school encouraged its followers to celebrate these young individuals’ aspirations to make a mark on the world.
