Kuhenza for the children has been blessed in the last few weeks. We have received a large donation which has enabled us to purchase 4 acres of land where we plan to build a Disability Resource Centre.
Recently Kuhenza hosted a workshop for 20 Traditional Birth Attendants, Traditional Healers and Soothsayers.
Driving to Malindi for a meeting, Kuhenza’s Director Leonard Mbonani spotted a man in a bicycle wheel chair. He was laboriously making his way along Mombasa Road, carrying three big sacks of charcoal in the wheelchair.
Kuhenza works with many wonderful people from the different schools we support and we would like you to meet them too. Here is the first of a series of interviews with some of the talented and dedicated people who are doing a fantastic job for the children with Special Needs. Meet the Head Teacher for Gede Special School: Martha M Karo, or Madam Karo as she is better known.
They did it !!
From the 31stDec 2015 to the 8thJan 2016, three young disabled Kenyans completed the 9-day climb to Mount Kilimanjaro’s summit. Their goal was to raise funds to create awareness about people living with disability in their community and to prove to the world that DISABILITY IS NOT INABILITY. They were joined and supported in their challenge by a team of 7 experienced climbers from the US and by Bishop Kalu from Mombasa Diocese.
On the 16th of January we hosted a very successful and well attended Disability Awareness Day at Gede Special School. Dignitaries from all over Kilifi County attended as well as friends and supporters from ”Kupenda for the Children” from America.
