ABSTRACT

Ehis study attempted to assess the effects of domestic violence on academic performance of a

~irl child in Busia Municipal Council Eastern Division. Descriptive-explanatory design was

~mp1oyed using combined qualitative and quantitative approaches. The study found out that the

Tiajority of residents in Eastern Division had benefited from free education programme though

with some challenges; children who come from peaceful families performed better than the

}ildren who came from chaotic families; provision of the above materials have helped in

maintaining children in schools; domestic violence had indeed affected performance of girls in

schools, though there are other factors which also affect these girls academically; when some

girl’s performance deteriorates, they are counselled with senior women teachers. The study

found out that government education programmes which include universal primary education,

universal secondary education, universal post primary education and training had indeed

improved the academic performance of girls in schools. In a bid to ensure promotion of human

rights and prevention of domestic violence, the government must take effective steps to ensure

gender equality. There is therefore need to provide access to immediate means of redress to

victims of violence.
