Ksh155 million has been set aside to support about 1,300 Kenyan teachers for seven months even as coronavirus spread continue to strike higher. This was revealed during a UK virtual meeting that was meant to ensure that refugee children continue with education during and after the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the United States actress Angelina Jolie who is also the Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, some learners worldwide may never get back to school even at the end of coronavirus pandemic.
The United Kingdom Ambassador to Kenya Mrs Jane Marriot also revealed that teachers who will benefit from the support project include those in refugee camps in Kalobeyi, Dadab and Kakuma.
About 300,000 learners from the ten countries selected by the UNHCR will benefit from this project. Other countries include Uganda, Yemen, South Sudan, Pakistan, Chad, Sudan, Malawi, Rwanda, and Mauritania,
Kenya in particular has been set to recieve a total amount of Ksh713. This comes at a time when the Education Sector is struggling even as the Kenyan schools are set to reopen in January 2021.
