Deamer Academy was a private school located in Eldoret, Kenya, providing
elementary education to students who would not otherwise attend school.
The curriculum focused on beginning academics and character
development. The vision of the school was to bring up children who will
benefit society in the future as part of a community building process.
It was founded in January 2007 by Barnabas and Florence Bett with
minimal personal financial assistance from members of the Deamer/Hough
family - and was thus named in honor of Meg Deamer, who passed away in
Oct. 2006 in Port Vila Vanuatu
shortly before the school was founded

Subject: closure of the school.
After lengthy consultation with parents, and teachers and the
headmaster, we have decided to close the school officially. We arrived
at the decision when we considered many factors mainly those of
sustainability, taxes, and corruption ... The other factor was failure
of the parents to meet school fees though it was the cheapest in the
It is really a hard decision we made but we have decided to take the
step especially when some parents do not see the sacrifice and efforts
we have made over the years. We are however going to decide what to do
with the buildings, we may have to convert to be rentals for people to
hire. We will have to look for some money to renovate, that is repair,
paint and partition them so that we hire out. Pass our greetings
