KCSD project builds informal school in Kiambio slums eastleigh Nairobi, providing quality education and critical literacy support services to over 300 vulnerable children orphans traumatized by the loss of their parents to HIV/AIDS pandemic.
Deaf education has been a major problem due to abject poverty and HIV/AIDs which has affected many deaf children in Homa-Bay county Kenya. A recent study shows an alarming rate of poverty in deaf children and their families in Kenya, and statistic indicated an estimated of 330000 population of deaf children are not in school at all and their future hangs in space. Most deaf children are orphans and cannot speak for themselves therefore making their lives unbearable. The beneficiaries are deaf.
The project will provide shelter, education and vocational training for their future economic independent and an opportunity to become part of a larger solution for their own families, community and in doing so we share in the development of their families and the entire community. KCSD takes the unequivocal position that there's no excuse for this deplorable situation, since Deaf children have the same innate intellectual, social and emotional capacities, as do all children.
The project will provide education to 3000 deaf children and the youths giving them opportunities to rise out of poverty, by providing them with, education and vocational training for their future economic independent, self-sustainability and an opportunity to become part of a larger solution for their own families, community and in doing so we share in the development of their families and the entire community.
