Samuel Collins finally in School It was great joy and happiness for the entire community when Master Samuel Collins got his admission letter for Joyland Special School in Kisumu city, 300KMs from his home in Kitale.

Finally on 20th February 2010, Master Samuel Collins was admitted in this special school. He was elated to be among other students in the school.

Last week on Saturday, the Executive Director visited Collins in school. Collins was happy to see him. He was full of joy and excitement. It was exciting and fulfilling to hear Collins reciting the alphabets, and some arithmetic. Collin shared light moments. ‘How is my grandmother? Is there rain back home?’ Exclaimed Collins. When it was time to leave, Collins said, he will be joining his peers back at home for the April Holiday.

With your passionate donations, Collins has been able to access education. The educational journey for Collins has started. We look forward to your sustained support.

On behalf of Collins and entire community, we thank you for your continued support. Your donation ensures that Collins education is not discontinued.

Peoples' Feed Back on Harmonized Draft Constitution of Kenya

250 children, girls, youth and elders directly participated in the discussions on this harmonized draft constitution. They shared with passion what they hope this constitution should contain. Children were particular about protection, medication and education. The girls want a constitution that looks at their unique needs especially reproductive health, entitlement to inheritance and access to equal opportunities.

The youth being majority in the population feels sidelined as the harmonized draft constitution only has two paragraphs which define them. They want a more presence in the constitution which also gives them at least 5% of all elective and appointive bodies.

The elders and community members were very clear about agriculture. Kenya depends on agriculture for its economy and it’s unfortunate that nothing significant is mentioned in the constitution about it. They want agriculture enshrined in the constitution. Security ranked second and they want every Kenyan security protected by the constitution.

TYSA wants Sports enshrined in the constitution. We are known worldwide as a sporting nation. It is up surd if we do not back this by an inclusion into the constitution We thank all those who contributed to this project.

Urgent Medical Attention

We want to thank you for your continued support to our program on persons with disability. Mr. John has skin pigment deformity (Albino). John is well integrated into the community and feels at home wherever he goes. John has a growth in his cheek. Preliminary examinations indicate the growth is extending to the ligaments. We are seeking your donations to help him go for further examinations to ascertain exactly what it is. In August 2010, John will be among 10 TYSA representatives in the International Youth Camp to be held in Mwanza Tanzania, where he will talk about the rights of Albinos. With your support, we do hope that he will be treated and ready for this great opportunity for him to share with the Tanzania community how to defend the Albinos who are being killed especially in Mwanza. With Warm Regards from TYSA Gichuki Francis
