Improving Lives of Youth with Disabilities, Kenya

Aug 26, 2010


James Mwanzi a peer buddy at St.Genesis High school and his buddy, Nicholas Okumu from St.Maurus special school had a fantastic holiday over the month of August. James and Nicholas have been buddies for the last 5 months and their friendship has grown tremendously from one level to another level and they have both cherished each other like twin brothers. Their August holiday was long overdue as they had planned for it one month before. It all started on 3rd of August just immediately they closed school and they decided to go on a series of safaris. They started by going to the animal orphanage, a place they have never been before. After the animal orphanage, the following day they decided to go for 2 days in Maasai Mara animals game reserve.”It was such a fantastic holiday experience I have never had in my life, my buddy James is such an incredible friend that has changed my life.”Said Nicholas Okumu. “I have never organized for such a historic moment with any of my friends, Best Buddies is a true movement that creates a change in somebody’s life. My attitude towards people with intellectual disability is quite positive as this is a very mutual friendship and an eye opening experience.”Said James Mwanzi. “On behalf of Best Buddies Kenya, I would like to thank all those who support Best Buddies Kenya either by in-kind or financial support. Your support has been truly of great impact and value towards the movement of Best Buddies and its mission. This kind of a revolutional experience is the kind of change we as Best Buddies Kenya would like to see and hear.” Said Enouce Ndeche,Executive Director for Best Buddies Kenya.
