SAMSON TABOSWA FIRST DAY AT EDLORET SPECIAL SCHOOL Master Samson Taboswa is a 12 year old mentally challenged child. His parents are poor and could not afford to take him to special school. TYSA through its sports program for disabled persons realized the need of this boy. Through globalgiving- education and livelihood opportunity, it has become a dream come true for Samson family and the local community to see the boy admitted in this special school. We still have 11 children in our waiting list with disabilities that need specialized educational support Samson was quite elated to meet children like him at the school on Friday 10th May 2008. He freely interacted with them and felt at home. This is only the beginning. We shall need your continued support so that the boy can gain from this specialized school. It cost US$ 600 per year to provide special education to Samson. This covers school fees, uniforms, beddings, personal effects, and transport among other costs. On behalf of Samson, TYSA, Samson family, the local community, we want to thanks all of you who have contributed their dollar to help support Samson’s special education. May God bless you many times.
