Students from Boni schools within Mararani, Mangai, Basuba and Milimani in Lamu County were today airlifted from their respective villages to join Arid Zone Junior secondary school, Mokowe courtesy of Operation Amani Boni (OAB)
The students are set to join their fellows after completing the first level of the new Education System, CBC.
The students were received at Mokowe airstrip by the local administration officials led by the area Chief, Mr Khalifa Alwy and parents. They thanked KDF for their continued support not only in the Education sector but also in other spheres of life with sole aim of uplifting the social status of the marginalised group.
“I’m grateful for the support that you’ve accorded us since your troops set foot in Lamu, I hope this zeal will continue as long as you continue to serve in this region. ” Said one of the parents, Mr Bwanamkuu Ali.
The airlifting of students is part of local populace-centred approach taken by OAB in partnership with other local actors to uplift livelihood of the residents as well as fight against violent extremism
