Eldas MP Adan Keynan has embarked on a tour of his constituency to advocate for girl child education.

The MP met community leaders, educators, and residents to sensitise them on the importance of equal access to education.

Keynan visited several schools in Eldas South sub-county to highlight the importance of providing quality education to girls and ensuring they access opportunities like boys.

The MP said girls face challenges in accessing education, such as cultural barriers and economic constraints and called for concerted efforts to eradicate the same and create an inclusive educational environment.

“I will work closely with leaders at all levels to streamline development goals through collaborative initiatives of strengthening and actualising transformative ambitions that upscale capacity and unlock the community's potential for long-term gains and enduring prosperity,” said Keynaan.

He presented Sh3 million to Elnur Primary School, Elnur Mixed-Day Secondary School and Elnur Girls' Secondary School.

He was speaking on Wednesday at Elnur Girls Primary School.

Keynan spoke after meeting local stakeholders to explore strategies to improve education infrastructure, enhance teacher training, and implement policies that promote gender parity in schools.

MP promised to ensure a supportive environment for girls to thrive academically.

“As the tour progresses, this cause serves as a beacon of hope for a brighter and more equitable future for all children in the constituency,” he said.

Keynan is committed to championing girl child education and empowering them to realise their full potential.
