Centre Education & Community Based Rehabilitation

One of the objectives of CERBC is capacity building for people with disabilities and their organizations as
well as the empowerment of parents  with disabled children. Through CBR volunteers, DPOs are identified and CERBC provides training for members on several aspects: social, health, organizational as well as the rights of persons with disabilities.

Deaf girls on the parade of Woman's month
No one should be left behind in society. Deaf girls from the Aru School of the Deaf, ESMA, demonstrate their abilities, competence and membership in an active society. Ready outside the office of Aru Sub County, Deaf girls are the first to lineup for the walk followed by thousands of other girls, students from regular schools Each week the Directorate of Aru School for the Deaf receives new parents, who bring deaf children to register. Things never done before. But because of the limited capacity of the boarding, the Directorate of ESMA refers many children for future years.

The Prevention of Deafness and Hearing Impairment:
Audiology Service
11 patients under 5 years were consulted. We have used the distraction test (see fig7), but the results are not accurate because of the lack of certain equipment such as Digital sound level meter.
Challenges:
- Lack of hearing aids
- Improved sound proofing for good hearing test conditions.
-Lack of a technician for maintenance and repair of audiology equipment. For now the Centre uses a single audiometer, There is need to repair the second one.
