Kenya is in the midst of the worst drought in recent history, and children tend to be the most affected.
In Kilifi County, the effect of the drought has had a devastating impact on children's education. Lack of food and water is the biggest challenge. Plan International is providing urgent supplies and lifesaving humanitarian support to families hit by the crisis.
Girls also face the additional challenge of fetching water for their family. Due to the scarcity of water, girls are often forced to walk further than normal, putting them at risk of harassment from boys who try to entice them away with gifts of money.
