An update from Joseph in a recent visit to the Marsabit region. Thanks to the generosity of the children, parents and teachers at Cranleigh C of E Primary School, we are able to help make a difference to the lives and schooling of the children of Elmolo Bay.
The school does well and enjoys sustained development support from a number of agencies and institutions. Two new dormitories, additional water distribution system and solar (one each for boys and girls) were completed with funding from CDTF(European union). The boarding is maintained by Kenya Government. Student population is at 329 while that of teachers is 9. In addition, the Elmolo school has two feeder nursery schools with a population of 94. A new primary school was set up by Kenya government for one of the two Elmolo villages. Elmolo community has now two primary schools. Water access to schools and villages has been good. Jacob is still the Head at Elmolo while his former deputy Richard is the Head at the new primary school called Layeni.
