Company Background

Single Education and Publishers Ltd. was established in 2002, taking over from Single Publishers, which was established in 1984. The founder, Mrs R N Kinyua, was a long time educationist, specializing in lower primary teaching. Her vision was built on the realization that:

      • Teachers needed:
        • A resourceful book from whence they could derive exercises to test the pupils' understanding of what they had been taught.
        • A book that would offer further explanation to enhance the curriculum.
      • Pupils yearned for textbooks that they could write and color on thereby giving life to the learning experience.


      • Exercises for Standard One English, by R N Kinyua
      • Exercises for Standard Two English, by R N Kinyua
      • Exercises for Standard Three English, by R N Kinyua
      • Learn to read English by sounds, by R N Kinyua
      • Mazoezi ya Kiswahili darasa la Kwanza , by R N Kinyua, P Ngugi and G Matti
      • Mazoezi ya Kiswahili darasa la Pili, by R N Kinyua

      • Exercises for Standard One Mathematics, by R N Kinyua
