With the introduction of Free Public Education in Kenya, the cost of school uniforms continues to impede education access. In 2003, school uniforms cost about 480Kshs (approximately 2% of per capita GDP), which was excessivefor many families. 

During our stay in Kenya we had the opportunity to interview many of the women who care for 5-10+ grandchildren each. During this interview we asked them what was their top priority in their daily lives. All of the 15+ women interviewed said money for school fees. This was before food and shelter. Why? They know this is their grandchildren's only chance to get out of extreme poverty.
