UNICEF Donates Face Masks and Learning Materials to Schools

Prof George Magoha and Maniza Zaman

Today UNICEF Kenya donated face masks, electronic radios and textbooks to the Ministry of Education.

These donations are intended to boost learning and address COVID19 problems as schools reopen in January.

The Cabinet Secretary for Education Prof George Magoha received the donations from UNICEF representative in Kenya Ms. Maniza Zaman. Magoha received the masks at the Education Ministry headquarters in Jogoo House. The Cabinet Secretary emphasized that the phase masks will be provided to needy students.

According to the Ministry of Education, these items will be delivered to learners once schools reopen in January, 2021.

In October, UNICEF also donated hand washing materials as the phased school reopening kicked off. Since the programme started, students started to see positive changes in their schools. There are hand washing machines, soaps and sanitizers everywhere in the school compound. Learners also keep social distance and wear masks at all times.

Even as the Ministry of Education tries to implement the Covid-19 protocols, the donation of items from UNICEF will go a long way in curbing the spread of the disease in schools.

However, considering how corrupt our nation is, we might find students buying these commodities instead of getting them for free.
