Kenya -Sep 2014 - Part 2

I spent most of my days in Western Kenya visiting schools and local community self-help groups.

Public schools are facing many hurdles in East Africa. Explosive demographics (families have an average of 8 children, and schools cannot cope with the growth), lack of funding to maintain the buildings and pay the teachers (the local communities have to pay some teachers themselves, with the risk that they cannot pay if the harvest is bad), there is often little sanitation (no toilets or water in the school), no fence or security measures, no electricity and  few schoolbooks (usually 1 schoolbook for 3 children). 1,133 more words
