The dormitories, located in Mbungoma East District, are for the Teremi Boys and Chwele Girls Secondary schools. The boys’ dormitory will house 1,400 students and the girls’ dormitory will house 840 students.

Representatives from the Kenyan District Commissioner’s Office, U.S. Embassy in Kenya and the Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa, as well as the Kenyan director of education, Teremi school staff and teachers, attended the event.
