Government to aid physically challenged children attain education dreams

Embu Deputy County Commissioner Mercy Gitobu has assured parents of physically challenged school going children that the Government is committed to supporting their children to achieve their academic dreams.

Speaking at Embu Urban Primary School during a walk organized by the Embu Red Cross Society to raise funds in support of physically challenged pupils at Urban Primary school, the DCC said that just like their counterparts, physically challenged children have a right to quality education.

She said that the Government has given equal treatment to all children who are abled differently so that they could fully pursue their academic goals and achieve them.

“The government has given equal preferential treatment to all children who are abled differently so that they can fully pursue their academic goals and achieve,” she said.

Embu Red Cross Society chairman Vimal Chada called on parents who have physically challenged children not to hide them in their houses but to bring them out so that they could be supported to pursue their dreams.

“I call on those parents who are having physically challenged children not to hide them in houses but to bring them out so that they can be assisted to pursue their dreams,” he said.

Chada added that through the government’s efforts of having integrated schools, such children’s academic aspirations are well taken care of.

He told the parents to take advantage of the government’s 10-day mass Covid-19 vaccination campaign dubbed “Kenya Tukae Chonjo” which was recently launched by the Health Ministry Chief Administrative Secretary Mercy Mwangangi targeting to have 2.3 million people vaccinated, to ensure that both the parents and their children above 15 years are vaccinated.

He further called on Embu residents to maintain peace before, during and after the election so that the economy of Kenya could stabilize.

Red Cross Society second deputy governor Sam Nyairo called on well-wishers to partner with the Red Cross in supporting the physically challenged children at the integrated urban Primary School in Embu.

He said that despite the national government playing a big role in ensuring that the physically challenged children get education, the initiative still needs well-wishers because there is a lot of funding needed.

He also called on parents with physically challenged children to take them to schools assuring them of a safe and secure learning environment for their children.
