Most children living in poor village areas in Kenya and are willing to go to school have not been able to go to school because of abject poverty, cultural orientation, authoritarian parenting among other reasons, despite the government’s attempt to provide for free education. Most public schools do not understand the meaning of free education as claimed to be offered by the government because most schools still charge school levies to enable them operate, for example, a child will need school uniform, which is otherwise not provided by the government. Thus, children who cannot afford the levies are denied their rights to education.
The purpose of this project is to promote children’s rights to education by ensuring that a poor child does not miss going to school because of poverty, cultural orientation or whether they come from authoritarian families. According to OGB (2007), In the rural Kenya, 60% of the population lives in poverty and levels of inequality are dangerously high, with negative implications for both human security and economic development.
