Goat droppings help schools for Kenya's nomads


The Kenyan government has introduced mobile schools in the rural areas of the country's north where families live a nomadic lifestyle.

The idea is that people should not have to choose between a lifestyle and an education.

There are early morning lessons, then the pupils go off with the goats, camels and cows in search of grazing before more lessons late in the day.

Will Ross visited one such school and found out how even the herds help out with the learning.
