Learning outside at Irindiro Special School
Learning outside at Irindiro Special School

The situation of Coronavirus in the country has improved and all education institutions have resumed. Our two targeted schools, Athi special School and Irindiro are in session. The challenge is ensuring the children with disabilities maintain social distance and hygiene such as wearing of masks. In order to ensure the learners are protected the schools have resorted to restricting visitation in the schools.

Irindiro special school is in need of extra classrooms as they only have 2 classrooms catering to 110 learners. To avoid overcrowding the children are learning outside under the trees.

In view of the last population census, which revealed that Meru County is leading with the number of persons with disability with over 60,000 persons with disabilities, the DCC embarked on registering persons with disability especially women for the past 2 months in order to seek support from the government. The target is to register 6,000 women with disabilities and so far we have registered 8,000 persons with disabilities with 5,300 being women. After the exercise they will be trained on how to use their new registered status to advocate for support from the government.
