Abolition of School Fees, Kenya

Many classrooms are now bulging with the country's most disadvantaged children. The photos have been taken in two schools in Kenya's coastal town of Malindi which has the most crowded schools in the country.The World Bank expects to spend $100 million on education in Kenya over 5 years.
