Former students of Kisumu Boys High School are mobilising funds to build classes and renovate dilapidated buildings to improve the institution's infrastructure.

The Kisumu Boys High School Alumni Foundation on Saturday said they were also concerned about the institution's declining stature both in academics and co-curricular activities.

The organisation chaired by former East Africa Law Society president James Aggrey Mwamu said they will raise funds to upgrade the school.

Mwamu said Kisumu Boys is an academic giant that also produced some of the country's best soccer players.

"Our target is to upgrade the school's infrastructure which is overstretched due to the high student population," Mwamu said.

The former students will also mentor and inspire students to post good results through a partnership with the network of former teachers.

The alumni's first project will be the erection of a modern perimeter wall to replace the dilapidated one which Mwamu said was built in the 1970's.

"The facelift also targets neighbouring primary schools that feed Kisumu Boys."
