Kalokutanyang Mobile School is part of UNICEF’s Mobile Schools project and is operated in cooperation with the Kenyan Ministry of Education. There are about 81 mobile schools in Turkana County. Kalokutanyang supports close to 150 households by improving children's access to education, even in the most remote areas.
Kalokutanyang Mobile School, which consists of an early childhood development center and a primary school, provides access to basic education for pastoralist children as a part of the framework for nomadic education. UNICEF provides early childhood development kits, teaching and learning materials for primary education, in addition to infrastructural support such as building latrines. Kalokutanyang currently has 95 registered students ranging from 4 to 13 years old with class sizes between 40 and 50 students per day. The World Food Programme (WFP) provides food supplies for the school to prepare student meals.
