An ambitious campaign project has been launched in the County that will see more children attend school.

The programme dubbed “Bring back out of school children Project” which was officially launched yesterday in Kapenguria will be funded by government of Quatar through Unicef and World Vision targeting 60,000 out of school children by 2018(2yr programme)

Governor Simon Kachapin in his official trip to Qatar in 2015 presented a proposal to the government of Qatar to support education in the County which resulted to the funding of Ksh 90 million to world vision and 40 million to ATR to implement the programme in partnership with the County government.

According to the survey done by Uwezo Kenya in 2014,more than 60,000 school going children are out of school in West Pokot County due to retrogressive practices and insecurity challenges that were experienced in the area.

Speaking during the launch of Bring Back children out of school campaign in Kapenguria town, World Vision Manager in West Pokot, Titus Kaprom said the campaign will be done in the whole county targeting children between 8 to thirteen years of age.

West Pokot county commissioner Wilson Wanyanga who was the chief guest called on all actors to give education a chance saying the government will enforce the law to ensure that every child goes to school.

He urged chiefs to form committees to help in children enrollment in schools and give education a priority.

West Pokot county CEC for education ICT and public administration Gladys Kiyapyap who represented the governor said that education has changed the face of the region.

She said the education sector has taken the lions share from 2013-2017 which has translated to great improvement both in infrastructure and learning environment for learners.
