Summary

This project trains 250 parents in toilet use for disabled children thus enabling them join special schools.We also provide toilet kits, education sponsorship, physical exercises and medical care.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Approximately 2 million children are born with disability in kenya yearly. 1.5 million are children in rural areas.The greatest tragedy is over 1Million children can not go to school because they can not use toilet on their own, yet this needs relatively simple corrective procedure costing US$ 200.Medical care, education, toilet use,and physical exercise need to be given at the right time to save children. 'We are training parents in toiletry skills " Gichuki Francis, TYSA Executive Director

How will this project solve this problem?

Toilet kits help children learn to use ordinary toilets. Through toiletry training, children are able to join special school and get better education "My child is in special school after being trained in toilet use," Fred Kitiyo, a beneficiary.

Potential Long Term Impact

250 disabled children after being trained in toilet use and school fees paid for, will access quality education allowing them to be recognized and respected in society thus reduce isolation, shame and stigma associated with disability
