These education interventions will not only ensure sustained learning during the school break but also seamless transition when schools re-open among the targeted groups. Furthermore, Xavier Project in consultation with other key education actors such as the Ministry of Education, the Kenya Education in Emergencies Working Group (EiE) and the Education Development Partners Coordination Group (EDPCG) will work with School Heads and Boards of Management to achieve post- COVID safe-back-to school.
