A charity organisation from the US has launched a project to sponsor more than 600 physically disabled children
Cynthia Bawer, the managing director and founder of Kupenda organisation, said she came up with the project to help the children realise their dreams.
"I began this organisation after seeing the children suffer in their homes in Sokoke when I came to do my research project. Many could not attend school because of their condition while others were denied food," said Bawer who is also physically challenged.
She was speaking after visiting Gede Special School for the physically challenged where they have enrolled some of the children. Others are located at their newly-built home in Marafa, Magarini district
"We have rolled out outreach programmes to reach out physically challenged children so that the society can change their attitudes towards them," said Bawer.
