The fourth SDG by the government of Kenya addresses education with an aim of ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. This means the government and development partners have a huge role to play in ensuring that access, retention, transition and quality are achieved for our children. In Kenya, Free Primary Education exists but that has come with a lot more challenges than anticipated. With an increase in enrollment, public schools became overpopulated with very little resources coming from the government thus quality of education became compromised.
Action for Children in Conflict works with the Ministry of Education, Boards of Management, stakeholders in the education sector, communities and children to provide marginalized children with equal chances of accessing education. Our education Programme has been very instrumental in improving access, retention, transition and also quality of education in Kiambu, Murang’a and surrounding counties over the past ten years.
