Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Advocating Rights For People With Disability

In our community we have people with disability. The community is not recognizing this people in that they are not been hard. EDDO has come up fighting for their rights. They are creating awareness that people with disability are like any other human being. disability is not inability. The community should not look down on them but take care of them like any other child. They give education to them and not neglect them. We appreciate the government is soon starting a school in our village for the people with disability in Kakamega County.
