About the project
The special school for the hearing impaired was started by the Catholic Church of Bungoma Diocese under Mundika Parish in 1992. The school has 115 pupils whose hearing loss ranges from mild to profoundly deaf. Other pupils struggle with multiple disabilities which include deafness coupled with learning disabilities, deafness coupled with intellectual disabilities, deafness coupled with cerebral palsy, deafness coupled with cerebral palsy, deafness coupled with physical disabilities and deafness coupled with vision impairments. Due to the high number of pupils, the school needs more classrooms and sanitation facilities.
Safaricom Foundation constructed three classrooms and two blocks of latrines for boys and girls at a cost of over Sh 4 million.
The pupils of Mundika Special School now have proper sanitation facilities. They also have classrooms that will ease congestion and ease learning.
