The Ministry of Education (MoE) has partnered with the Human Development Foundation (HDF) to transform the educational landscape in Garissa, Mandera, and Kisii Counties.
The collaboration was officially discussed during a meeting between Ezekiel Machogu, the Cabinet Secretary of Education, and Mohammed Omar, the Managing Director of HDF. Dr. Esther Muoria, the Principal Secretary for Technical Vocational Education and Training, and other education officials were also present during the meeting.
Machogu highlighted the commendable reputation of Kenyan education and noted that some Kenyan expatriates were sending their children back to the country due to the strong values ingrained in the curriculum.
He mentioned that the MoE will take the lead in implementing the pilot program, which envisions improving educational resources and connectivity in the target areas.
“HDF’s pivotal role involves providing digital devices, establishing internet connectivity, and implementing systems to access educational content in five schools located in Mandera, Garissa, and Kisii Counties,” the CS added.
In response, Omar conveyed HDF’s commitment by pledging to donate 35 computers for use in educational and training institutions.
Additionally, he emphasized HDF’s mission of assisting and developing children living in vulnerable conditions, enabling them to break the cycle of poverty and achieve self-sustainability.
This transformative collaboration is set to bridge educational gaps and empower young learners in these counties, offering them opportunities for a brighter future.
