In the greater Kajiado County alone we have more than 450 children who have been tested and confirmed deaf by the Ministry of Education Kajiado Education Office. Sadly , they do not attend any school. to some families it is a challenge to even raise the USD476 required to place a child in a boarding school that provides best learning environment for such cases of hearing disability. By providing visual equipment in an ICT lab setup, such learners are given better and greater learning experience
The institution enrolls deaf learners in early childhood, lower and upper primary, secondary and tertiary levels offering competitive skill training in a variety of areas. The institution also trains hearing individuals using Kenya Sign Language (KSL) on interpretation skills, in order to break the communication barrier between the deaf and the hearing.
MoCeDET seeks to make the disabled population a part and parcel of the general community by breaking the barriers that have denied them the opportunities open and accessible to the non disabled populace. Experiences gained and knowledge generated from our institution will have the huge multiplier effect no t just to compliment institutions in the country, but to the general populace across the continent.
MoCeDET aims to expose the deaf to the latest information and communication technologies (ICTs) so as to prepare them for a technology driven economy as opposed to their present training which limits them to menial non-skilled jobs, discouraging pursuit of higher learning. The institution has adopted the 1965 UNESCO view that rather than an end in itself, literacy should be regarded as a way of preparing one for social, civic and economic roles.
