Rachel Mutoni, 19, from the village of Ilimba in Tarakanishi County, Kenya, was absent from school for about seven months. Sometimes she didn’t have enough money for fees or even food.
“COVID-19 temporarily suspended my education. That meant I lost one year of schooling. I got stuck in the first grade for two years. Also, the pandemic was unexpected. Seeing that, it put a lot of pressure on my family in terms of taking care of me by providing the food and necessities needed for online learning during a pandemic. ”
