Adult Literacy Programme has been providing knowledge and skills to enhance human capital for the solution of various problems in society. The problem in the area of study has however been environmental degradation occasioned by persistent deforestation. The study set out to establish the impact that the planning and implementation of the programme has on enhancing environment development and management in view of the continued environmental degradation in the County. A conceptual framework based on educational production function theory was used to explain the link between the programme and environmental development and management. Using descriptive survey design, the findings revealed that, learners’ theoretical understanding and practical application of skills learnt were assessed. The study concluded that, as knowledge and skills acquired were applied, more evaluation needs to be done downstream to ascertain the practical returns to education

dc.description.abstract Learners with physical disability in the western part of Kenya frequently make use of bus terminals during in the trip to and from school. Special schools attended by learners with a physical disability are few in number and far removed from the residences of most students thereby necessitating travel. Bus terminals located herein become obligatory points of passage for almost half of learners with physical disability in Kenya since seven out of thirteen special schools are located herein. This study, therefore sought to establish the accessibility of washrooms to learners with a physical disability whenever they made use of bus terminals. A cross-sectional survey design targeting 317 respondents who were sampled from a population of 1,525 was used. Data was collected through the use of questionnaires, technical measurements and observation schedules. It was established that washrooms in the study area enhanced spatial exclusion due to the presence of barriers at doorways and constricted washroom stalls. en_US
