Help Kenyan children with disabilities into school

Nov 20, 2013

November 2013 Update

We are pleased that more volunteers from the UK have been able to visit our partner projects at the Disability Centre in Maua and Athi disability school recently – Hands Around the World recognises the importance of ongoing relationships, so that the support we can offer is led by our partner’s needs.

In August we had just started the process of seeking a sponsoring partner to enable the development of the Orthopaedic workshop and therapy room at the disability centre. We are delighted that we have now achieved three quarters of the funding needed, and are now only looking for the money to support the staff training element of the original proposal. Can you contribute towards the extra £5000 that is needed? We look forward to starting this initiative from next January.

We want, by our support, to help provide improved services to children with disabilities – whether they are living in their home communities or attending the disability school in Athi. As well as disability aids, the children need the opportunity to develop life skills which will support them in the future. We hope to promote income generating initiatives which will support the projects and give the children opportunities to learn new skills. How about sponsoring chickens, or a fish pool, so that the children can learn to care for the animals and earn an income too…..?
