Mr. Abdalla Ahmed, Chief Officer Education and Vocational Training, paid a visit to Wiyoni Primary School earlier today, where the County is building an ECDE center with two classrooms and two toilets.

Mr. Abdalla, who was also accompanied by Quantity Surveyor, Mr Edwin, emphasized to the contractor that the work be completed as quickly as possible so that the students can move into their new classrooms and alleviate congestion.

The county has also dispatched one ECDE teacher from the newly recruited team to solve the teacher shortfall at the school.

In the last four years, Governor Fahim Twaha’s administration has implemented a raft of measures to improve access to and improve the quality of early childhood education in Lamu, including the construction of 28 ECDEs, with eight more under construction this fiscal year and two others undergoing refurbishment/renovation, the hiring of trained teachers, training and capacity building for all teachers, and the distribution of teaching materials and furniture, among others.
