EFFECTS OF WIDOW INHERITANCE ON CHILDREN’S RIGHT TO EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION IN UGENYA DISTRICT- SIAYA COUNTY, KENYA.

PDF version

The right to education is an alienable right based  on the theory of naturalism and
universalism.  It is defined as the universal access to free and compulsory primary
education, universal availability and accessibility of secondary education and equal
access to higher education in Kenya is every human’s right.  Nonetheless cultural
dispensations such as Widow Inheritance (WI), undermines the realization and
implementation of this universal concept.  WI curtails widow:  marital decisions,
infringes upon widows’ rights and by extension those of their children like nutrition,
healthcare, play, property inheritance, parental involvement and particularly the
opportunity to learn.  This renders children unprepared to take up challenges and
demands of the early year’s curriculum with the right frame of mind.  It is in this context
that the study sought to investigate the effects of widow inheritance on children’s rights
to early childhood education in Ugenya District, Siaya County, Kenya.
