Boarding Schools and Gender Equity: A Teacher’s View

Video Link: Head Teacher: Jen Kibii

As we plan Simbolei Academy, American supporters sometimes ask “why a boarding school? Shouldn’t girls be living at home?” Kenyan educators, however, fully support boarding schools as the most effective means for girls to obtain a quality education.
