Healthy learning for primary school children
Kenya's Healthy Learning programme, running in 30 schools in eight arid and semi-arid districts, aims to improve child health and teach valuable skills for life. From simple activities such as hand-washing to production of crops for food and income, the programme integrates important life skills with academic learning, and encourages children to take what they learn at school and implement it at home. Geoffrey Onditi reports from Narumoru Primary School, where he speaks to the head teacher and to some of the pupils about the programme, and the benefits it is giving them.
