Collins who has low vision due to Albinism, was among the special-needs student in Kenya who had the opportunity to benefit from the inABLE Computer-labs-for-the-Blind program. For eight years, Collins attended the computer lessons provided by inABLE in partnership with the Thika Primary School for the Blind. During this period he was very committed, disciplined, and self-driven. Collins excelled in coding class and participated in peer-to-peer training, where he helped other blind and visually impaired students improve their understanding the computer concepts.
During his primary-school education, Collins achieved good grades and was admitted into the Aquinas Boys High school, which an integrated school that admits students with special needs. Despite his vision challenges, Collins managed to beat all odds to score a very good grade of A- in the Kenya certificate of Secondary Education test. This achievement will help him fulfill his goal of attending a good University of his choice to work toward his dream of becoming a medical doctor.
Collins ‘ high exam performance was recently highlighted on one of the leading local TV stations.
As an organization, inABLE, is bursting with pride at the accomplishments of all of our students, including today the most capable and ambitious Collins. We join the loud chorus of praise to congratulate Collins and his family. And look forward to the day when Collins is living his dream.
