Project Profile

Volunteer in Makueni County in Eastern Kenya and work with physically handicapped children in the Kyale Small Home. The institution consists of a school and a home, which has been in existence since 1994. A Primary School and Catholic Church surround this home, which currently houses 20 physically handicapped children. These kids are boys and girls aged between 10 to 19 years. They have suffered accidents, snakebites and Polio, were handicapped from or during birth, among other causes.

The idea of this project is to make a difference in the life of children and young adults with special needs and disabilities in order to become self-reliant and integrated into mainstream life without fear of stigmatization.
