COCE has partnered with Good Steward Global Initiative to deliver books to rural schools in Busia County, Kenya. The books arrived in the summer of 2015 and have been distributed among local primary schools that have constructed their own libraries. Our hope is to enhance the academic resources of the students as well as engage the larger community in a pursuit of literacy.
The students, parents, headmaster and community members were excited to receive two new classrooms for Bukhulungu Primary School. Students are eagerly awaiting chairs and desks for their new classrooms!
Often girls must leave school once they begin puberty due to a lack to toilets. Building on-site latrines for girls at Bukhulungu Primary School has helped girls remain in school and continue their education.
