Project Report | Sep 13, 2021
50% match funding all this week!

HATW works in partnership with the Disability Community Centre (DCC), Kenya, a community project which supports children and families with disabilities, whilst increasing disability awareness. As well as this, the DCC supports initiatives in Athi and Irindiro and other local schools which provide residential education for children with impairments and disabilities. They do incredible work and make a significant difference to some of the most vulnerable children and families in the region.

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about new challenges, particularly exacerbating the need for access to efficient technology. We want to support the DCC by raising £1,200 to purchase 3 laptops. Although it was the pandemic that sparked the necessity for efficient online access, providing new laptops to the DCC office also opens the door to new forward thinking approaches to training and supportive measures.

We are excited to be partnering with GlobalGiving to raise funds to support the incredible work of the DCC staff through the provision of three laptops.

GlobalGiving's Little by Little campaign runs all this week (13th - 17th September). All donations up to $50 (£36) will be matched at 50%. If you can, please support the DCC appeal and donate this week to make your money go further!
