Summary About 1 in 10 girls completing primary schools in Mandera County achieve required minimum marks to join secondary schools due to inadequate teachers and teaching resources, overcrowded classrooms, lack of facilities at home for self-study and parental illiteracy.This project aims to bridge educational gaps for 100 orphaned primary school girls in Mandera County by providing them supplementary literacy and numeracy classes, sanitary pads and solar lanterns to improve their home-study environment. What is the issue, problem, or challenge? Mandera County is a remote arid region 1136km from the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.9 out of 10 people in the county live below the poverty line. Although the number of girls in primary school has increased, still 6 out of 10 girls in Mandera are out of school. Orphaned girls from poor families are most affected. Girls as young as 12 years old work to contribute to family income, forcing them to drop out of school. Others take on caring roles to assist their mothers.This impacts on their performance. How will this project solve this problem? The project will run an after-school remedial lessons in Maths and English, provide essential personal hygiene products such as sanitary pads, uniform, solar lantern for use at home to reduce financial burden on the girls' families and mentoring to build their confidence.The project will work closely with the schools to monitor regularly the girls' progress at school.
