President Uhuru Kenyatta and Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the United Kingdom will today, Thursday, May 13, conduct virtual visits of two schools.
The visits to Westlands Primary School in Nairobi and Cleves Cross Primary School in Ferryhill, England, are part of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) initiative.
The visits will provide President Kenyatta and Prime Minister Johnson an opportunity to directly engage with pupils, aged between 9 and 11 years, and create a high profile moment for championing education for all, with a special focus on technology and girls’ education.
Westlands Primary School and Cleves Cross Primary School are part of the Connecting Classrooms Through Global Learning, a programme that provides opportunities for pupils to engage peers across countries on global issues such as climate action and gender equality.
The event will start at 12noon EAT.
