The official handing over ceremony of “The Project for Expansion of Kimilili D.E.B Special School for Mentally Handicapped”

The Government of Japan has been providing funds to local non-profit organizations through the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects (GGP) since 1989.

The official handing over ceremony of The Project for Expansion of Kimilili D.E.B Special School for Mentally Handicapped, a GGP project, will be held at the school in Kimilili, Bungoma County. The Grant Contract for this project was signed on 26th of November 2017.

The project received a grant amount of USD 80,607 (approx. Kshs 8Million) for the construction of a classroom, two latrine blocks, two dormitories and the purchase of desks and beds for students. Before the completion of the dormitory, the learners were forced to come from far, or they just gave up schooling. Now, the students have a comfortable dormitory, complete with attached toilets and shower space, located inside the school compound.
