Through the fantastic generosity of HATW's supporters, the Disability Community Centre (DCC) in Maua, Kenya, continues to nurture local children with disabilities – encouraging every boy and girl to develop their interests and talents, and supporting them to showcase and share these gifts with one another. Most recently, the DCC held a children’s forum to bring together children from the different special schools supported by the project.
The event provided an opportunity to interact and share the challenges faced by the institutions as well as celebrate successes. It was also a chance for the children with special needs to demonstrate their talents in song, dance and poems, providing a platform from which to express themselves and to inspire each other. You’ll find some wonderful pictures of the children’s forum included with this report.
HATW also recently made a combined effort with the mobility charity Motivation Africa to provide the DCC with 40 new wheelchairs and associated assembly, fitting and user training. HATW also continues to support the provision of sitting and standing aids to children who require such assistance to participate in daily life and the activities at the DCC. These initiatives are part of the DCC’s commitment to providing children with disabilities access to high quality equipment and support, helping ensure that they are able to succeed in their endeavours no matter the challenges they face.
