Workshop: leaders in Turkana
The Turkana people in rural North Kenya are among the poorest with low rates of education particularly among girls:
In this deprived and famine-ravaged region, most girls never get to see the inside of a classroom. Indeed statistics from the Turkana District Education Office reveals that of three girls who attain the school-going age of five, only one joins Standard One or early childhood education centres. And for the few who join, too many obstacles stand in their way of reaching upper primary. Access to health care is equally poor: health statistics.
Yet, there is beauty despite poverty: amazing pictures.
