Description

Volunteer in the Eastern region of Kenya and work with physically handicapped children in Kyale Small Home. This is a school and a home that was created in 1994. A primary school and Catholic Church surround this home, which currently houses 20 children. These kids are boys and girls aged 10 to 19. These children have suffered accidents, handicaps from or during birth, snakebites, and polio, among other disabilities. This home was established to cater for the challenged children in the local community. Every child is entitled to better care and upbringing. In most Kenyan societies, the physically challenged children get stigmatization from other members of the community making them feel less than human. Most people speak Kikamba as a native language. Farming is widely practiced for a living e.g. livestock poultry, small-scale farming of maize, beans, coffee, sweet potatoes, bananas, and vegetables. The Catholic Church and a primary school surround the home. Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, may be seen from the home.
