Summary

There is a continuing disparity in educational services in Kenya for children with disabilities. Traditional African beliefs & religious practices have resulted in negative attitudes toward individuals with disabilities, making it impossible to address educational needs of these children adequately. Many children with disabilities face hardships in accessing education as a result of this. This project is to make education accessible to children with special needs through the use of technology.

Challenge

Disabled children and youth have no access to education and skills to compete competitively in the job market. Disabled people are faced with poverty due to high illiteracy and lack of skills. This means the only meaningful job they could engage in is begging in the streets. This is because while normal children are allowed to attend school, they are locked in and chained for "daring" embarrass their families because of their disabilities.

Solution

Education and skill-building is the only way that could help disabled people participate meaningfully in the national development. When they get education, it broaden their mind and horizons to participate in the development processes and thus helping their communities. At the same time, providing them with skills will not only make them become competitive in the job market, but will also help them be creators of jobs so that they are able to employ other young people in their community.

Long-Term Impact

The long term effect of this project apart from enabling children & youth to gain education and skills is to reduce poverty that majority of disabled people go through due to lack of education and skills that may enable them to compete favorably in the job market with others who are able. 99% of beggars in the streets are disabled people & with education & skills, they will have access to jobs. It will also make parents take their disabled children to school & not be considered burden anymore.
