Fundraiser for Kenyian Project 2018

The school  was started in 2013 under Nyamosense Primary School, The local Christian Church, KVDA volunteers and the local community. I was one such volunteer who dug the original foundations for a two-roomed classroom in 2013 and have been returning ever since continuing to build the project and improve the lives of these very special children who have captured my heart.

The Village of Nyamosense is in South West Kenya. It is quite rural and the people are from the Kuria Tribe. Their economic mainstay is farming tobacco and maize. They also trade in cattle and goats however cattle rustling is rife between the Kuria people and the Maasai tribes of the neighbouring Maasai Mara region.

The project began as a result of the growing plight of children with disabilities (Deafness) within the community who suffer neglect and denial as Kenyan Society, as a whole, remains unwilling to acknowledge these children as worth-while members of society. They instead hide and segregate them. They are abused and often exploited and denied their basic rights to health, protection and education.

This year I am hoping to raise monies to fund the building of a small dormitory to sleep the children as they currently sleep on the floor of the classroom. I would also like to start work on a bore-hole for water as currently the children have to travel to the local watering hole and carry back very dirty and contaminated water which continuously makes them ill.
