Key Information

A school group in front of their classroom, possibly Sigomre school in Ugenya village. The school building is a distinctive long rectangular grass thatch building divided into single rooms, possibly up to five classes. The children's shirts have a distinctive badge incorporating the letters 'SK' which may be a reference to the school name. [Gilbert Oteyo 9/9/2004]

Research Notes

According to E-P's note the school is called Kagomyi but this may be a misspelling. I suggest this is probably Sigomre school in Ugenya, Siaya District. [Gilbert Oteyo 9/9/2004]
