Girls, especially those in the nomadic areas, suffer more than boys. While gender constitutes a determining cause, geographic location compounded by natural challenges such as drought and floods, is another important factor. Distance to schools is an important obstacle, underscoring the availability of schools and school places. Availability of water is another issue. Some schools lack water points and are located more than 10km away from nearest water sources. – UNESCO KENYA REPORT (pg. 35)
