About the project

The Challenge

Rugunga Special Unit was started at Rugunga Primary School in Budalangi in 2004. The unit was registered in 2012 as a special school and has always accommodated mentally challenged children.

The school was then relocated next to Khajula Dispensary in 2013 after the Budalangi Community Development Fund (CDF) purchased 0.5 acres of land. Four temporary classrooms were then constructed under the efforts of the dispensary and CDF. The school has 94 pupils who are not easily accommodated in the few classrooms.

The Intervention

Safaricom Foundation donated Sh 2 million towards the construction of 2 furnished classrooms in the school.

The Impact

The children in the special school now have ample space that have eased learning. The institution can even take on more needy cases.
