orphaned learners in primary schools in Nandi east district. The study involved quite

number of respondents from teachers, pupils from upper classes were, selected in a

gender conscious manner, The instruments employed in this study were mainly

questionnaires, and observations accompanied by interview guides.

Data was analyzed by the use of statistical packages where by the responses were coded

and edited, then presented in tables, pie-charts and graphs.

The following were the major findings of the study; it was discovered that in an attempt

to find out whether the orphaned learners experienced social problems that could hinder

their educational performance, the teachers were asked questions relating to the girls'

inter-personal relationships with other learners and with teachers. They were also asked

to describe their academic achievement and to suggest the reasons for the academic

performances, and to describe their behaviours in the class and to mention how often they

were punished and the main reasons for punishment.

Finally the researcher asserted a conclusion basing on the study findings that, the Lack of

trained teachers in the regular classes strongly indicates that the girl child learners'

educational performance is affected by the teachers' inadequacy in skill for addressing

their unfolding realities of being orphaned in relation to their performance.
