About Me

I was born in a humble village of nyajuok in siaya district. I was the third born in a family of eight children. My father was a primary schools teacher while mother was a house wife. With the challenges of fee, I went through primary and secondary education, after which I got married. My husband has Bee of help through my training in teacher's college and special education training. After the training I taught in different schools before starting my own.I like spending time with this unique group of children and also enjoy music, travelling and reading

My Business

I handle children with mental disabilities. Each child is unique in his own way therefore we handle each as an individual using individualized educational programme. We ensure these learners realise their maximum potential though may be different from others. Due to the fact that these learners have mental disabilities, most of them have other handicapping conditions such as health issues like epilepsy, physical challenges like muscular distrophy and micro cephaly, speech and language disorders etc. This means that we have to work hand in hand with other professionals like opticians, ophthalmologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists etc

Loan Proposal

I will buy more utensils needed for the program to be effective. This is because we expect more learners at the beginning of next year. The feeding program usually maintain the learners in school as most of them come from poor families where the next meal is not a sure thing. Most of our parents are also semi illiterate and are not quite informed of balanced diet. The learners need good nutrition for the nourishment of their growing brains. Also taking into account that they also have special needs
