Hundreds of learners are stranded after 15 schools were demolished in Nairobi, Mukuru Kwa Reuben to pave way for the construction of roads.
Over 300 students among them Kenya Certificate Of Primary Education (KCPE) candidates have been affected.
"I have seen some of my friends going to school, when they ask me why I am not going to school I tell them I cannot join them because we haven't been enrolled to any school yet." One of the affected learner Lavine Barasa said.
"Parents are bringing in their children stating that they want their children to learn here. We have nowhere to put them, that's why we have decided to look for good helpers." Said Sophia Muita, the school head at Bright Star Academy.
"People from this community survive from hand to mouth so what happens if they don't have jobs and they don't have schools, the community will perish in poverty." Roseline Asena a community worker in the region said.
For some like Lavine, his efforts to find a school to learn has been met with disappointments after another. The right to education has become a challenge after the school he was learning in was demolished.
