Educational Consequences of Orphanhood and Poverty in Western Kenya
Nyambedha, Erick Otieno; Aagaard-Hansen, Jens
Educational Studies, v36 n5 p555-567 Dec 2010
During the past decades, many developing countries have been severely hit by a combination of poverty and the HIV pandemic. However, there has been a debate about the relative contribution of these two factors. This study showed that poverty and orphanhood were two separate but interrelated factors contributing to poor schooling. There were no differentials shown based on double orphanhood or gender. We recommend that educational policies should put into consideration both poverty and orphanhood in order to increase schooling access for children affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty.
