School Buses

By a female, 46-60 years old , in Busia, Kenya
Map of SCHOOL BUSES Most schools in my district had no school buses and if they had then it was the then or the old school buses that looked like lorries of which some were very old that the could not climb a steepy roa. Most of these schools had to hire public vehicles while going out for games or educational tours and this became expensive over the years. However, with the establishment of the community Development fund (CDF) most schools have been able to save and acquire school buses on loan. It amazes me when I see even those schools that I thought would never have school buses have school buses something that signifies a major development that's going on in our schools. In recent years. I have witnessed a number of primary schools in my hometown like st. Teresas girls primary school acquire school buses something that seemed almost impossible in the past Thanks to government for establishing the CDF and parents who have been supportive to schools to ensure that our schools acquire school buses.
