KENYA-CHILDREN-SCHOOL

Kelvin Leadismo (2nd L), 12, and his classmates attend a tuition class at Loltulelei primary school on July 16, 2013 in Kisima township of Kenya’s nothern county of Samburu. The class is attended by young shepherds from the Samburu community who are usually unable to attend regular daytime classes when they are tending to their family’s livestock at pasture. The school runs a parallel tuition programme to the national curriculum that enables the otherwise illeterate shepherds acquire literacy through the two to three hour tuition courses presided over by volunteer teachers.
