Master Dino Joins School Master Dino, son of a teen mother from sitatunga village one kilometer from our offices got his chance to join Suwerwa primary school last term. Master Dino who is physically challenged was admitted in class 2. At 11 years, Dino starts his long journey in search of his dream and career. Master Dino stays in the Children with disability home at Suwerwa adjacent to the primary school. This makes it easy for Dino to attend classes as well as receive specialized care from the Home which hosts other 20 children with similar conditions as Dino. ' I am so happy to TYSA for paying school fees for Dino. It was not easy. I was almost losing hope' Mum Dino. We are also very excited that at long last Dino has a school and a home where he receives specialized attention. Once the school closes for end of Term three at end of November, Dino will come back home and join the community. At the beginning of this term September to December, one of the boys whom we support Master Collins did not report to school in Eldoret Special School as usual. We tried to follow with the family and it was a difficult situation. The mother and other children had left home after a domestic quarrel. The boy was left alone with the father. The father just left the child to stay home. Though the father prefers the child to go to school, he was so disturbed by the family break off. We are following up the case with the community elders and hope that Collins will resume school in January 2012. As an organization, TYSA is working towards having a closer working relationship with the Trans-Nzoia East District Education officer department of special needs. This will enhance our programs and create larger impact in the school and community. Your continued support to our program has generated this great interest in the children with special needs thus the desire and request to work closely with the Ministry of Education. This will require resources to facilitate play, team building, excursions, education to parents and training of teachers for children with special needs. This is a great way to celebrate our 10th anniversary as n organization in December 2011 Lynnette , one of our beneficiaries who has an albinism condition is currently seating for her Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education. We wish her all the best What do you think of this new approach! We look forward to your sharing. Gichuki Francis
