|Abstract||The SNV Kenya North Rift Portfolio conducted an initial enquiry into the state of primary education in Kenya. A 2003 UNESCO and Kenya government study of the challenges facing the government's Free Primary Education (FPE) policy provided an initial input to the SNV enquiry. According to the report, many parts of the country, especially the pastoral communities and slums, were badly affected by the FPE challenges. This led the team in Eldoret to study the problems of primary education in slum areas, visiting the slum area of Langas with the Eldoret Municipal Education Officer (MEO). This report discusses the SNV initiative.|
