31 May 2013 | Tana River County: Impact of Conflict and Floods on Learning

• 24 schools affected by conflict and floods in Tana River County, contributing to a large number of pupils missing more than 30% of the 2013 academic year. Learning was disrupted by lack of access to some schools as a result of floods.
• 2013 Enrolment in Tana Delta District dropped by 23% to 16,651 (7,716 girls and 8,925 boys) from 21,584 (10,351 girls and 11,233 boys) in 2012.
• School meal rations not yet delivered to all the schools in Tana North and Tana Delta.
• Sunken toilets, coupled with inadequate access to clean water in schools, have increased children’s vulnerability to water contamination and water-borne diseases.
• Only half the teaching force has reported in some schools due to fear of attacks.
