Humble Hearts School, Kenya's first bilingual school schools for the deaf using Kenyan Sign Language and English, was started by Beatrice Anunda on 9 September 2003.

Anunda was taught Kenyan Sign Language (in the University of Nairobi's KSL Research Project), and came across a nine-year-old deaf child called Melinda in Doonholm.

The school is based in Sinai (Paradise), a large slum by Doonholm, a middle-class suburb of Nairobi. Lately,[when?] the school, was bulldozed "accidentally" by the government. They are now trying to rebuild it, but the government will not give them a compensation fee.

Humble Hearts has a "sister school", Trillium Charter School, located in Portland, Oregon, United States.
