This book looks at the Africa Inland Mission (AIM), a faith based
evangelical mission organization in the development of education in
Ukamba region of south-eastern part of Kenya from 1895-1970. Africa
Inland Mission pioneered the introduction of Western form of
education to the Akamba community amidst many challenges. AIM's
founder, Peter Cameroon Scott introduced education in Nzaui Mission
station in 1896 before his death. Scott's vision was to spread the
gospel of Christ Jesus by establishing a chain of mission stations
from the east coast of Africa to the west. He died a year later in
1896, after opening mission stations at Sakai, Kilungu and
Kangundo. After his death, God raised Charles E.Hurlburt, as his
successor who gave the organization a new structure and made
Scott's vision a reality in Africa. Hurlburt supported and
encouraged the use of education as a strategy for evangelism in AIM
from 1906 till his resignation in 1925. The Akamba people resisted
this modern education in favor of their traditional methods of
training; but after 1920s they changed their attitude and demanded
AIM must improve their educational curriculum in Ukamba region.
