In the semi-arid zone of Garissa County, Northeastern Kenya, Somali-Kenyan pastoralist nomads are constantly on the move, following the rains, and seeking pasture for their livestock. Therefore, school enrollment is low across the board, and especially low for girls. One solution is the mobile school, which is transplanted to follow the community. After completing 3 years of primary schooling in the mobile schools, students can transfer to low-cost boarding schools. Another factor in the low enrolment is the relative instability of Garissa county, as it is close to the border with Somalia, and Al-Shabaab militants (or their sympathizers) have carried out numerous attacks in the towns of Garissa, Wajir, and Dadaab, as well as attacking nomads in the region.
