A School-in-a-Box that Makes Learning Possible During Disasters
By Susan Otieno and Hellen Owuor, World VisionCommunications Department, Kenya Children have a right to education. And their hunger for it is evident in many Kenyan communities. However, natural disasters at times make learning impossible. For instance, floods emanating from heavy rains often destroy books, stationery and other learning materials used for studying. Teachers in affected schools may also lose teaching aids. As a result, learning is often halted in flood-prone schools, making children lag behind in education during rainy seasons.
