Garissa County, KLB partner to promote education

The Garissa County Government and the Kenya Literature Bureau (KLB) have signed a partnership agreement in which the latter will supply learning materials for Early Childhood Development and Education (ECDE) and the Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET).

Speaking after receiving the partnership business model from KLB area sales and marketing representative, Ali Bille, Garissa County Secretary, Abdi Sheikh, welcomed the collaboration saying that it will go a long way in improving learning at the institutions.

The County Secretary said a strong foundation is important for the young ones at the ECDE level as they move to upper classes.

“I believe with this partnership in place, our pupils can look forward to a bright future, since they will have all that they require in their day to day learning,” Sheikh said.

“With quality learning materials, we expect to achieve good results and qualified students, who can fit into the emerging market,” he added.

He urged the institutions that will receive the materials to make good use them.

“The Garissa County Administration under the leadership of Governor Ali Korane, remains committed in addressing the plight of teachers, stabilizing early learning and setting a strong base for education of our children,” Sheikh said.

The County Secretary urged the youth to join tertiary institutions, adding that the County needs personnel with such skills.

“As a County, we have pumped in a substantial amount of funds to improve on the infrastructure as well as to equip these institutions,” he said.

Bille said the partnership comes with other benefits that include capacity building for ECDE teachers on the new Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).

The Sales Representative said that the partnership comes with institution-to-institution purchase of text books and other learning materials for both ECDE and TVET centers.

It also caters for tailored trainings for ECDE teachers on new CBC curriculum, he added.
