Manera Primary School is located in Nawasha Town in Nakuru County, Kenya. The school has a population of 1073 pupils, 34 teachers and 6 support staff. The pupils come from the slums of Manera and Kaiyu. Most of the parents are lower farm casual laborers earning less than two dollars a day. Due to their low wage, the parents are unable to contribute to the school development or their children’s medical bills.

Police Primary School

Uganda

Police Primary School is located in the eastern part of Kaabong Town Council in the Karamoja Region. In their culture, the people believe in defecating in the open field as it is believed that if women use the latrine, it will stop them from birthing children. This is a very remote part of Uganda and one of the poorest regions in the country. Food is scarce, and during the rainy season, the area floods so badly, it prevents anyone from coming in or out, unless they have a tank or a helicopter.
