'Ring a Bell Campaign' launched at Nairobi's St Elizabeth Primary school in Mukuru slum
Parents were asked to take their disabled children in school instead of hiding them at home.
Speaking yesterday during 'Ring a Bell Campaign' at Nairobi's St Elizabeth Primary school in Mukuru-Lunga Lunga slum, Programme officer at Chesire Disability Services (DCS) George Shimanyula said the aim of the event was to sensitize the world on the importance of inclusivity of a disabled child to get space in the school.
"The handicapped child needs inclusivity and love in school since 9 out of 10 children with a disability don't o to school," Mr Shimanyula remarked. A total of 1,800 children participated in the event.
