The county has since 2013 registered key milestones in promoting elementary
education. 1833 ECDE teachers have been hired and deployed across Baringo. Additionally 219 new ECDE centers spread out in all the 30 wards have been established with more being rolled out as the finished ones are equipped for learning. These developments have seen enrollment in our ECDE centers increase by about 50 percent.
To promote up scaling of enrollment in our youth polytechnics, the county has injected resources to give a face lift to these institutions. 4 workshops and hostels in Kabimoi and Baringo youth polytechnics have been established while 79 youth polytechnic instructors have been empowered through training. Enrolment and retention in our youth polytechnics has more than doubled.
In order to help finance basic education and ensure that no child of school going age has been locked out of school, the county has so far disbursed a KES. 60 million as Bursary Funds for financing fees for needy students in secondary schools, youth polytechnic trainees and students in tertiary institutions.
In our ongoing collaboration with World Best Friend of Korea, Baringo County Government has established an ICT training center in Kabarnet that offers free basic computer training to our youth and the general public for free. We have so far distributed 1165 computers to 101 institutions.
