Facility Construction

Many children with disabilities lack adequate care because their schools and communities do not have space where they can receive intensive medical and therapy services. In response, Kupenda partners with local governments and organizations to renovate or construct facilities that contribute to the health of children with disabilities, such as occupational therapy rooms and sanitation facilitates. These building projects have improved school attendance and quality medical care for hundreds of children and will continue to do so for years to come.


The Constituency Development Fund of the Kenyan government provided funds for construction of an occupational therapy room at the, Marafa Special School. Hungry for Life, who funded a dormitory here in the past, provided the therapy equipment.  The occupational therapy room is for children who attend the school and those from the area not yet of school age in need of regular therapy services.
