In the outskirts of Maralal town, Samburu County, something peculiar will not escape your eye: A number of children looking after livestock.

These children are meant to be in school but are tasked to herd since in a number of homesteads, they still value livestock over education.

However, this narrative is gradually changing. “Lchekuti” is a form of learning that allows children to herd during the day and attend classes at night- when the goats are fast asleep, well-fed.

Today at 7pm and 9pm, senior education reporter Sharon Barangโ€™a brings you a special feature on these pupils, and Lchekuti.
