Gede special school has appealed to well-wishers to help build the institution meets its role. Deputy headteacher Christine Kombe said the school is understaffed.

Kombe said that the school has only nine teachers from the Teachers Servce Commission and five are employed by PTA. She said the support staff are not enough

"The children are 131 in this school. We only have 14 teachers. This is like a drop in the ocean because these children have hard time to manage. 131 children who are physically challenged are more than 2000 children in a normal school," she said.

Speaking during the donation of food stuffs, sanitary towels, pampers, mattresses and bed sheets among other goods from PKF Kenya in the school, Kombe revealed that the school only has three dormitories which are not enough and up to standard.
