For the last six years Friends of Kianjai Kenya (FKK) have been working to support special needs children and their mothers across Tigania West.
In 2018 they funded outreach projects in excess of 3 million ksh. These funds are being spent on mobile physiotherapy clinics,nutrition clinics, special unit feeding program, playgroups for disabled children,and a disability football league in partnership with Special Olympics Kenya.  With these community outreach projects we are trying to give these children and their families hope for the future.

Mothers  of these children face HUGE challenges. In 2016 FKK undertook a survey of carers and found that in addition to poverty and the challenge of feeding their children and finding school fees, which can be common in this rural area,these mothers also faced lonliness and isolation from the community and their extended family because of the stigma of disability. These mothers were often overwhemed by the practical and emotional challenges facing them. In addition because the special needs child often stays hidden at home for years with no medical intervention, their disability progresses at a much faster and disabling rate than is generally found in the West.

CAN YOU HELP US BUILD AN EARLY INTERVENTION AND RESPITE CENTRE TO OVERCOME THESE CHALLENGES NOW AND FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS?
In 2014 FKK bought 3 acres of land on which to build an early intervention and mothers respite centre to overcome the challenges set out above.
Over 3million ksh has been spent on the site to date, building a dormitory with water and electric supply,establishing a farm and a unit manufacturing standing frames and chairs for our children.
10 million ksh is needed to add another dormitory,therapy room,dining room,kitchen, quarters for overseas and local staff, and to establish a workshop for manufacturing commodes and wheelchairs..

The small UK FKK team are committed to finding each year the 3 million needed for the outreach programs, plus the additional 3 million we find each year to support 250 chidren through secondary education in Tigania West. But we need the help of all Kenyans across the world to help us finance the building of this Rehema Centre!!!

Once the Rehema Centre is built we can resource it from the UK, and provide foreign experts in their field to support local professionals. It is possible that Rehema can a Centre of Excllence can be established which can act as a model for the whole of Kenya. ...... We hope you can join us to create a lasting legacy............
