Water Scarce – Clans Fighting

February 5, 2018

The drought situation in Pokot is getting out of hand. There are also inter-clan fights that are threatening to get out-of-hand. There is scarcity of water and some schools have been shut down because the students are forced to go out and look for water instead of attending school. The schools where our girls teach have also been affected. The girls report a dwindling number of students in the classrooms.


One of the girls texted us requesting that she be given an opportunity to attend college. We told her the opportunity we had arranged for her was passed onto another girl. We advised her to first wean her baby (who is only 1 month 2 weeks old) while we seek a scholarship opportunity for her. The rest of the girls are fine.
