The Republic of Kenya is a country in Eastern Africa. It is bordered by Ethiopia to the north, Somalia to the east, Tanzania to the south, Uganda to the west, and Sudan to the northwest, with the Indian Ocean running along the southeast border.
PAMOJA (K) Reflect Network was officially launched in October 2004 in Nairobi, Kenya by the then Director of Adult Education, Mrs. Joyce Kebathi.
PAMOJA Kenya, which deals with adult and continuing education, strives to ensure that the learning needs of all young people and adults are met through equitable access to appropriate learning and life skills programmes. We look forward to achieving a 50% improvement in levels of adult literacy by 2015, especially for women.
Through training, networking, coalition building, Research, documentation, policy and advocacy, PAMOJA Kenya is focused, through its membership, to use the REFLECT methodology to improve access and increase participation in Adult and Continuing
Education. We also use the methodology to address challenges posed by the HIV/AIDS scourge, improve school governance, budget tracking and conflict resolution, and address the challenges of the marginalized societies especially the pastoral communities.
To achieve a good quality of services, we work with the National education coalition- (Elimu Yetu Campaign- EYC) and get financial support from UNESCO Nairobi, Concern and EYC.
Using REFLECT to enhance community participation in school governance, promoting the right and access to quality basic education in Kenya, EPID- Kenya a member of PAMOJA, is planning to start pilot projects on school governance, focusing on education as a basic right in Samubru district. The project covers cover sixteen primary schools in Kirisia division of the Samburu district.
