CELEBRATING OUR SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN

Greetings! It was yet another exciting month where I got a chance to visit two children centers catering for special needs children, here in Nairobi, Kenya. Courtesy of a wonderful lady known as Shivona Walsh, I was able to deliver food and cleaning items to these two centers. It is quite sad that in many places today there is still negative public attitudes and awkwardness about disability, which leads to the affected child being isolated. And as a result, the child suffers immensely, not so much because of their disability, but rather because of the rejection they face. However it is my sincere hope that special needs children will be seen as any other children and accorded the love and support that they deserve. The descriptions of the two centers are given below.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT AND HOW YOU CAN BECOME PART OF IT

The goal is to identify places/people that have need and become a bridge, a connector between them and those who are willing to help, with the core focus being women and children. The inspiration for this project comes from my background whereby I am a person living with disability, Spina Bifida, raised up by a single mother, faced rejection from the society on two fronts:

1. As a person living with disability

2. As a person brought up in a single parent home.

After many years of struggle, I finally overcame all these and was able to stand on my feet and became comfortable with who I am. And now I want to help others out there.

You can become part of this project through your donations via paypal through the website. By doing this, you are not just helping them, but you will also be planting seeds for a much healthier and stronger future generation. Please contact me using the links given for other ways through which we can work together to achieve this goal.
