Ministry of Education announced it would broadcast lessons for up to eight hours daily through radio and television channels.

Pay-as-you-go solar firm has come to the aid of off-grid children by availing solar TVs and radios to rural families to enable them to continue education as schools remain closed.

With over 15 million primary and secondary students at home, the Ministry of Education announced it would broadcast lessons for up to eight hours daily through radio and television channels.

Azuri CEO Simon Bransfield-Garth said the solar-powered satellite TV is helping rural children across the country to access the new education channels and ensure they benefit from the national initiative as fellow students in urban areas, connected by the grid.

This has enabled rural households to access Edu TV Channel 029 featuring lessons including English, Kiswahili, Maths and Science.

This comes along with hygiene and nutrition lessons that are being broadcast to help inform students and families on best practices to help defeat the spread of coronavirus.

"Azuri is committed to supporting off-grid households through this challenging time. We want to ensure children in rural Kenya are not left behind in the learning process," said Bransfield-Garth.

Azuri-powered off-grid households can also access learning via Radio Taifa, with lessons broadcast from Monday to Friday.

Rose Adeny, from Siaya, who has three schoolchildren says they can listen and stay up to date with the news.
