The girls of coastal Kenya who are taking their education to a whole new level
Secondary education is not free in Kenya. Families have to pay for fees, books, uniform and everything else associated with school. In the communities around Msambweni on the Kenyan coast most families can’t afford it and children’s aspirations are cut short. This is particularly the case for girls who are often last in the family pecking order to be supported through the education system.
But, with the help of organisations like ETATU, more girls than ever in the local area are now getting the chance of a secondary education, with the possibility of even going on to University and beyond.
