Kiti Ki Menghi and his wife, Marie Claire, started the Nkembo School in 1985 with 12 children and two classrooms.

From 1997-2002, SD Switzerland, SD France, SD Germany and SD USA formed a partnership with the school. This partnership resulted in construction of nine classrooms, accommodation for international volunteer teachers, a generator to provide stable electricity, teacher training and a computer classroom. The school operates today on school fees and income generated from micro-enterprises associated with the school. More than 650 students are enrolled
