Introduction of the Free Primary Education (FPE) Policy in 2003 was aimed at enhancing the enrolment of all school -age children in Kenya. The right to education is anchored in Article 43(1) of the 2010 Constitution of Kenya. Specifically, education-related rights of a child are stipulated in Article 53 (1) which states that a child has a right to free and compulsory basic education. Kenya has made tremendous progress towards increasing access to education, due to free primary and day secondary education. Despite the overall progress in access, there are vulnerable children facing challenges in accessing quality education due to insecurity, cattle rustling and inter-ethnic conflicts. In West Pokot County, access to secondary education seems to be low as both gross and net enrolment ratios are below 50%. This is an indication of high dropout rates and low transition rates.
