THE STATE OF SCHOOL LIBRARIES IN KENYA
Libraries are non-existent in 98% of primary schools and most high schools in Kenya.
Lack of access to libraries creates disproportionately wide knowledge gaps and barriers to language and digital competence among children from low-income families. Without these foundations, it is harder to prepare school-age children in an efficient and effective way to become competent, successful citizens who are internationally competitive and have the opportunity to discover their dreams and reach their full potential.
KEY provides school libraries to otherwise underserved children.
