Narok County Sets Aside Sh70 Million For Bursaries.
Narok County Government has set aside Sh70 million for bursaries for needy children in order to ensure that the county achieves a 100% transition to secondary school.
The money, according to the area Governor Samuel Tunai, will only benefit needy parents who struggle to put food on the table so that their children can attend the secondary schools of their choice.
He reiterated that no child in the county, regardless of performance, ethnicity, or religious background, should be forced to stay at home due to a lack of school fees.
“We are committed to 100 per cent transition as schools reopen in a few weeks’ time. No child in our county should be left behind as their peers go to school,” he said.
“Even those girls who became mothers before they complete their studies, we encourage them to go back to school to achieve their dreams,” he said.
Tunai spoke at Oronkai Le Pirarr village in Trans Mara South Sub County, where he urged the education department to keep a close eye on all school-age children.
Tunai urged residents to reject regressive cultural practices such as female genital mutilation (FGM), which is widely regarded as the leading cause of adolescent pregnancy and school dropout.
According to a report released by the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), over 32, 000 school-aged children in the county will be absent in 2021.
Narok South Sub-county had the most out-of-school children with 10, 580, followed by Narok West with 9, 590, and Narok East with 3680 school-age children who were not in school.

According to the survey, the majority of out-of-school children were found in grazing fields, entertainment venues, the boda boda sector, and cultural events.
Some of the interventions proposed in the report to keep children in school include the implementation of school feeding programs in all public primary schools, low-cost boarding schools, the distribution of sanitary towels, and women’s empowerment.
