President Uhuru Kenyatta has said plans are underway to ensure all girls attend and complete school.
Uhuru also pledged that his government will ensure future pandemics do not disrupt learning in schools.
Uhuru was speaking during a virtual meeting with United Kingdom PM Boris Johnson yesterday.
The virtual meeting was part of the Financing Campaign for the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) ahead of the Global Education Summit to be held in London between July 28-29.
The president said his government is focusing on digital integration in schools for all learners.
“We are keen to bridge the digital divide to improve access to education for all children by making available internet and digital tools,” Uhuru said.
He said the plan will help mitigate the effects of learning losses occasioned by pandemics such as Covid-19. The high-level ‘Global Education Summit: Refinancing GPE 2021-2025, will be co-hosted by the two heads of state. The campaign aims to raise at least Sh500b to fund education in GPE beneficiary countries over the next five years.
