Turkana south constituency development funds have been channeled towards boosting primary and secondary schools
facilities. This will create a good learning environment.

The funds are to support setting up classrooms, dormitories and staff rooms and also provide desks and chairs.
For a long time most primary schools have been undertaking lessons under trees, which affected pupil attendance and affected academic performance.
Recently, Lokwadata primary school in Lokichar benefited with two classrooms and 50 desks.
Turkana South CDF chair Mr. Emeri Lodio while handing over the classrooms and desks said the project has greatly impacted the pupils, teachers and surrounding communities.
“This project has actually created a big impact in this community because initially pupils learning here didn’t have any structure and they sheltered under trees where they took lessons. Now they can enjoy the shelter and at the same time sit comfortably,” said Emeri.

Lokwadata primary school head teacher Eliud Ekiru said previously they struggled to provide education to pupils under trees.
“Before the intervention by CDF, it was hard teaching the pupils. Most of them skipped classes and the attendance was poor and this reflected on the results too.
The school has a population of 322 pupils and even though these 2 classrooms are not enough we are still grateful and we will still push for more,” Mr. Ekai said.
Others schools that have benefited from the programme include Uhuru high school and Katilu girls’ secondary school.
