OUR IMPACT

Wajir Girls Integrated Primary School

The Challenge

Wajir Girls Integrated Primary School lacked essential facilities to cater to the needs of handicapped students. This is the only boarding school that accommodates handicapped girls in Wajir County. The girls require frequent physiotherapy sessions to enable them to attend classes with their counterparts. However, this is an expensive practice that most of them cannot afford and they end up ping out of school.

The Intervention

We believe that the education of challenged children is paramount for them to obtain economic independence. Safaricom Foundation contributed Kshs 1.9 million towards the construction and equipping of physiotherapy facilities for the school.

The Impact

Thanks to this project, the girls receiving the much needed help they required with specialized services offered by the physiotherapy facilities. The facilities have also lead to a reduction in the number of girls ping out of school.
