Many schools in Kibera slum has been operating with registrations under either churches, CBOs or NGOs, but that will soon come to an end after Kenya Independent Schools Association (KISA) organized a forum that brought down the Ministry of Education officials to Kibera to sensitize the schools on the importance and how they could have their schools registered under Alternative Provision to Basic Education (APBET) . "We want the schools to understand that we are their friends and we are not here to close them down. said The Nairobi Sub-County Director of Education Madam Florence Muthoni when she spoke to the KNN team. The KISA Chairperson Mr. Charles Ochieng encouraged schools to register. "We want our informal Schools to also benefit from the government fundings, he said. Majority of the schools present embraced the idea but a few were somehow hesitant with the fear that they could be closed down should they be found to not have met the minimum requirements. Though the Member of County Assembly for Laini Saba Mr. David Kitavi assured the schools that non will be closed down, that the government is working towards improving the quality of education not only in Kibera but Kenya wide.
