Our Vision

 

A Starehe fraternity leading and transforming society.

Our Mission

 

To strengthen OSS to serve its members, the Starehe Schools and alumni and to make a clear contribution to transforming the society we live in.

Our Values

 

  • Leading by example: We bring the highest standards to what we do, standards that we want the Starehe Schools and society to emulate.

 

  • Engagement and contribution: We actively engage and contribute according to our means.

 

  • Private candor, respect and public honor: We are respectful, open, honest and very candid in our deliberations on any matter in our private and public engagements. In public, we will not conduct ourselves in a manner that portrays discord or could dishonour the good name of Starehe.

 

  • Personal responsibility and accountability: We are responsible for the results we achieve and the life we live. We open ourselves to be held to account by those who depend on those results.

 

  • Continuous learning and improvement: We take time to reflect, capture lessons and apply these to deliver a higher level of performance in the spirit of Natulenge Juu.

Our Objectives

 

  • To promote, improve and protect the interests and welfare of the members.
  • To foster links and fellowship between the alumni, and the staff, past and present, of the Starehe Institutions.
  • To encourage and assist the Starehe Institutions in every way possible, including but not limited to engagement and support in the governance of the Institutions, mobilising funds and relationships, and to support the current pupils of the Starehe Institutions in every way possible.
  • To make provision for bursaries and/or scholarships, loans, mentoring and any other support that the alumni may require from time to time to continue with their education or to engage in enterprise.
  • To raise funds through all legal means which include but are not limited to donations, investments, contributions, and corporate sponsorships to support the objectives of the Society.
  • To carry out any activity that strengthens the Society, serves its members, the Starehe Institutions and alumni, and that supports alumni to contribute to social and economic transformation.

Our History

Starehe's Founders understood that the future of Starehe would be secured by Starehe Alumni - the Old Boys & Young Women of the Starehe Schools. And so in 1969, Dr. Griffin personally established the Old Starehian Society (OSS). OSS was officially registered as a not-for-profit organization by the Registrar of Societies under Certificate Number 5676 dated 13th November 1970 and it operates under the Societies Act (Cap. 108).
