PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES (PWDs)
Since 2013 we have worked with the Mwanyambo primary school in Voi. It has a special unit for the hearing impaired and children with other disabilities. We are also running programs for evaluating children to get them into schools. In this, we are working with local schools, authorities and specialist. In addition to helping with urgent needs, we have also given art classes (with MyTribeIsArt), chess boards and chess lessons as meaningful activities at the schools.
In 2019 we were able to assess close to 100 disabled children so that they could attend school. We have also acquired a 4 acre plot close to Voi. Our plan is to develop this into a center for disabled children/youth and their families.
