We were so excited to visit the DCC and associated projects last week! A small group of volunteers including a physio, nursing lecturer, the new Executive Officer and a HATW Trustee went on a short fact-finding and follow-up visit to our partners in the Maua area.
We visited Athi school and were delighted to see the new classrooms in use, with students hard at work! (see pictures below)
At Irindiro school, the dormitory was looking so much better – with beds and mattresses for all the children now in place. There is a new wash block with showers and loos (with disability aid!) but, unfortunately, not connected to a water supply – you still have to bring your own bucket of water.
The new classroom for teaching the hearing- impaired is complete, though it still needs metal window grilles to protect the glass from accidental damage.
More importantly, the children lack the horseshoe desk which is needed so that they all have a direct line of sight to their signing teacher. Please help by sponsoring so that we can provide them with this essential resource.
