    Tens of thousands of children are out of school in Somaliland because of drought.

    Many of those still in the classrooms are relying on aid from the World Food Programme.

    Teachers say that although the children do not get a balanced diet, the food gives them enough energy to stay in class.

    Al Jazeera's Catherine Soi reports from Burao in eastern Somaliland.
