THE BWALIRO PROJECT
Although primary school is free in Kenya, many children do not attend school because they do not have enough food to eat at home, they are unhealthy, and/or they live in poor socio-economic conditions, among other challenges. The Bwaliro village in Western Kenya is not immune to these challenges, and this has resulted in a situation of impoverishment within the community. To address the issue of both child attendance and malnourishment, there has been a school-feeding and agroforestry program set up at the local Bwaliro Primary School. This video highlights how the school program has positively impacted child health, school-attendance rates, and educational outcomes, while also contributing to community economic development and environmental sustainability.
