Mentally Handicapped Boy finally joins Special School. After 11 years of waiting, Master Toboswa has finally secured admission at Eldoret Special School. Thanks to your donation through Education and Livelihood Opportunities. He joins the school on 6th May 2008.When we visited the school last week he was happy and in good mood. He moved round the school interacting with other mentally handicapped children. The school is in Eldoret town, 100 Kilometers away from Kitale where he lives. We are excited to have this boy join this school. The family members are very poor and could not afford to pay the school fee at this special school. We count on your continued donations to see him through the rehabilitation process. We shall keep you posted on his progress. Next time you see him, he will be in full school uniform!!! Thank you for your kind donations
