Challenge

K.A.G Siaka School for the Blind and deaf is situated in rural area in Kenya. Most of these pupils are orphans and some were abandoned by their parents because of their disability or they just cannot afford to cater for their special needs. This prompted the local KAG church and the community to take action and open this center, and make the life of the children better!

Solution

Siaka receives 21 deaf and blind children aged 5-18 years and it's the only center available in that community, 100% run by local volunteers (teachers, cooks, child care-taker, etc). We are supporting the school, as for a good education these children need special kits such as braille books or sign language books. We also provide them with other basics needs such as food, hygienic products, clothing. The school is still under construction, we lack enough dormitories to receive all the pupils.

Long-Term Impact

K.A.G Siaka special school believes these sensory impaired pupils can do everything except to see or hear. Through education they will not feel stigmatized when they grow up, they will learn that disability is not inability in the society and they can do much with education. Through this they can contribute much in the society by farming, teaching, etc. to help the society
