Kenya is hosting a regional conference on boosting girls’ education in East Africa.

Their goal is to challenge societal norms that exclude some girls from mainstream education, by using culturally sensitive approaches.

More than 100 stakeholders from Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya are to take part in the three-day meeting, which kicks off in Nairobi on Tuesday.

Another key focus is boosting support systems for vulnerable girls – including pregnant girls, teenage mothers and girls with disabilities.
