The National Fund for the Disabled of Kenya will open schools for people living with disabilities in Garissa and and Wajir counties, board trustee Peter Nyakiamo has said.
He said the board has set aside Sh5 million to build the schools that will improve the lives of the disabled. "We have completed one school in Mandera county and very soon we will start building others in Garissa and Wajir counties," Nyakiamo said.
He was speaking in Garissa town after presiding over an event to donate wheelchairs, sewing machines and generators worth Sh1.2 million to 82 disabled people on Thursday.
The representative of the Attorney General, Josephine Sinyo, urged the disabled to take advantage of devolution and seek various jobs in the county governments. She said disability should not stop them from achieving their dreams.
