Darul Ulum Secondary School

This School is now Managed by the Beit el Ulum Company P.O.Box 96593 Telephone: 2451135 Mombasa, Kenya.

The school which is a boys school with boarding facilities is located at Likoni near the Police Station, about a kilometer from the Likoni ferry. It came into existence due to the efforts of Jami Iyatu Taalimil Quran (JTQ), a registered NGO, with financial aid received from some philanthropists in the Middle East; the plot on which it stands was offered for use by a generous Muslim family. JTQ supervised its construction and managed it from 1987 to 1997. The primary objective of the school was to offer secondary education especially to the Muslim section of the community who could not afford the same. JTQ managed the school with the aid of numerous benefactors both local and foreign who contributed to a scholarship fund. Most of the students therefore received free education as well as free boarding and lodging

By 1997, JTQ found it quite difficult to manage the school owing to a substantial reduction in sponsorship. This is where Beit-el-Ulum came in. In order to preserve the Educational asset of the Muslim community, Beit-el-Ulum took over the responsibility of managing the school with a commitment to make the school self-reliant and therefore financially independent Darul-Ulum's main objective is two-fold: to provide quality secular education so that its graduates will have an opportunity to qualify to enter institutions of higher learning; and, to emphasize Islamic values and principles so that its alumni will be upright, well disciplined and useful members of the society.

One of the ways of becoming financially independent would be to attract more fee-paying students and the other to increase the student population by adding extra wings to the existing building so that two or more streams can be added. As a matter of fact, plans for a set of new classrooms, science laboratories, a library and two dormitories have already been drafted. Funds are now being sought so that construction can start. In a section of this webpage, there is a brief note on the project and cost as well as an artists view of the proposed extension. Currently, the school has a total of fourteen teachers (all of whom are graduates) and eight supporting staff led by Mr. Omar Hashim the head teacher.

The boarding facility is situated about a kilometer south of the school on a spacious parcel of land on lease from JTQ. Apart from being secure and looked after by a resident Boarding Master, the facility also has a mosque which further accords the residents the Islamic atmosphere in which they can develop their values.

 

Over the past five years, the School had done progressively well and has established its presence amongst the quality higher education institutions in the Coast province ranking in the top hundred schools provincially.

Proposed Extensions
The proposed expansion project whose plans and costings have been prepared by Nadi O. Hashim and Richard M. Mwangome of MahmoodAhmed & Associates, Mombasa, is expected to cost nearly Kshs.36,000,000. (USD 495,000). This will include the building of a Science Block, extra classrooms and a reading room, additional and improvement to the boarding facility, staff houses, improvement to the sewerage and drainage systems and other improvements. This project will improve the available facilities quite significantly, and should help attract more fee paying students as well as cater for the growth needed to making the institution self-reliant in the long run. The school represents a landmark in the Islamic History of the Coast of Kenya. The Board strongly feels that this institution must be preserved. This can only be done with your assistance. The complete document detailing the proposed expansion with all the architectural drawings can be obtained from the School upon request.


Appeal
By no means shall you attain righteousness unless you spend (in Allah's Cause) of that which you love, and whatever of good you spend, Allah knows it well. [3:92]

As is the case every year, there are a number of students who are unable to pay the required fees. You can sponsor one or as many students as you can afford to. However, it is important that  you continue to help throughout their study programme. Currently the average annual fees  for a forth form student is: USD 400 for Tution Fees USD 200 for Hostel fees USD 600 per  annum per student. At the same time, we would like to take this opportunity to appeal for  your support in respect of the proposed expansion project.
If your organisation has funds for Muslim education programmes then Darul Ulum's  expansion and development project is a worthy cause to support. Individuals and organisations whowould wish to finance wholly or partially the school expansion project  can appoint their representative (if they so wish) to oversee and control how each dollar  they contribute is utilized. Your reward will Inshallah be given by the Almighty Allah Subhanahu wa-taala.
