Kenya: British Give Sh22 Million to Aid Schools

Some 200 public primary schools are set to benefit from a Sh22 million global education exchange programme by the British Council.

This follows the re-launch of the Global Education Citizenship programme dubbed Connecting Classrooms by the council and the Education ministry.

The programme, which has been running since 2000, has received a new funding of Sh3 billion.

Speaking at a Mombasa hotel yesterday, British Council programme and business development manager Emily Gumba said it will help improve education standards in Kenya.

The three-year programme will connect 23 countries in sub-Saharan Africa and 51 globally to enhance learning through exchange programs.
