GVDA MLTV 17: KAKAMWE PRIMARY SCHOOL PROJECT TITLE: EDUCATION AND SUPPORT

Kakamwe primary school is a public school located in Tongoreni Division, Bungoma County with a total of over 600 pupils. Education is paramount in Kenya as you are aware that this is the key to development and progression. In 2003, elementary school education was made free and was an
obligatory requirement for all children. This meant that there was a huge influx of students but unfortunately there were not enough teachers.
