Health is a key component to making the most of an education. Children who are unhealthy are more likely to miss school, have difficulty concentrating and do poorly on exams and homework assignments than healthy students. One of the most severe health challenges in Western Kenya is the jigger flea menace. ACCES is currently partnering with Public Health Offices, local medical clinics, District Education Offices and medical training colleges at rural primary schools to eradicate the pest, provide training, enumerate and enroll out-of-school- children and empower families to live jigger-free.
