Japan to build Ksh18.3M centre to cater for children with disabilities in Kiambu
The Japanese government has committed to supporting the construction of infrastructure in the education sector in Kenya.
The country has since sponsored the construction of a Ksh18.3 million complex care centre to cater for children with special needs in Kiambu county.
Speaking at Kabuku, Limuru constituency, during the commissioning service of the Garden of Siloam(GoS) centre, Ambassador Ken Okaniwa said the centre was established to take care of children with special needs and create awareness about different conditions within the community.
"The project was a grant fund of about Ksh18.3 million by Japan and will enable GoS to receive more children."
The centre which was founded by Japanese paediatrician Dr Kazuko Kumon targets children with disabilities and autism conditions.
The envoy was accompanied by area MP John Kiragu, Githunguri MP Gathoni Wamuchomba, Kiambu woman representative Ann Wamuratha and Tigoni Ngecha MCA Patrick Ngaruiya.
