Disabled children get classroom worth KES1.2M

19 January 2015, 11:08 James Kabotia

Nanyuki - A school for children living with disabilities in Nanyuki town have a reason to smile after well wishers gave them a classroom fitted with modern facilities on Saturday.

The classroom at Likii special school was constructed at a cost of KES 1.2M by Mt Kenya Safari club in conjunction with Nobelity project.

Joseph Kilai, the Financial Controller at the Five-Star hotel and a member of the project, said they are also planning to build a dormitory in the special school.

“As part of our corporate social responsibility and as human beings, we aim at reducing human suffering for the children. We would also urge other members of the public to come forward and assist these children,” said Kilai during the handing over ceremony.

The head teacher of the institution, Ms Lydia Wanjiku with her members of the staff could not hide their joy, saying the facility will help in reducing congestion.

Last year, Laikipia East Constituency Development Fund (CDF) built another classroom at the institution to help ease congestion.

“Currently, we have 107 pupils in the school. The catchment draws children from around Mt Kenya region and would appeal to other well wishers to chip in and assist us to acquire adequate facilities so we can be able to offer proper care,” said Wanjiku.

The institution lacks basic facilities meant for pupils with special needs, with Kilai saying they will also be offering sanitary towels to teenage girls in partnership with other well wishers.

He said the dormitory will cost about KES 1.5M, which they intend to raise mainly from tourists who have visit Mt Kenya Safari club.
