Education Opportunities.

Pupils raising hands duringa class

Although both government and private individuals have constructed a number of schools, we still have challenges.


High Pupil/classroom ratio of 118:1 compared to the ideal ratio of 54:1, pupil stance ratio of 72:1 as opposed to the ideal ratio of 40:1 and pupil/desk ratio was 7:1 definitely presents a deficit in the formal education facilities.
Investment opportunities therefore exist in the provision of facilities and training in primary and polytechnical /vocational education.

There is also need for education and training programmes to help prepare the unemployed youth in the peri-urban suburbs and have them integrated into the urban economy to reduce on the levels of urban poverty.
