Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Free Primary Education

Introduction of free primary education and making it compulsory have seen many children from rural areas access it. However in Kakamega county only 75% of the population have access to free primary education, most of them being those found near major highways and urban centers. Although large number of them sit for K.C.P.E exams only 10% to 20% procede to secondary level. Major problem being high school fees for secondary education. Also the primary institution faces a major challenge of overcrowiding and poor states of classrooms, lack of better sanitation facilitates to accomodate this large number of pupil wishing for a better life. If this environment can be changed then we will hope for a better society.
