Despite the government of' Kenya and other stakeholders effort to achieve parity conditions in education participation country wide, there still exist remarkable imbalance especially in the rural areas and particularly in some communities where cultural values strongly persist. This also applies f'or the people that live in Kapropita sub zone. Cases of' school drop out are becoming alarming in this zone and have posed a lot of' concern both to the community and the government.
