The number of public primary schools connected to electricity was 8,200 representing 35% of all public primary schools as of 2013.

The Government embarked on a programme to connect all public schools to electricity.

Between 2013 and 2017, an additional 15,137 public primary schools have been connected taking the total number of schools connected to electricity to 23,337 representing 97% of all public primary schools in Kenya.

This is a 170% increase in connection of public primary schools to power.

This programme has enabled the implementation of the Digital Literacy Program across the country.

It has improved education standards for pupils, increased security of education infrastructure, and increased Primary to Secondary transition rate as a result of better educational performance.
