Residents of Kaundu area, within Mumoni sub-county of Mwingi North, Kitui today,{Friday} warmly welcomed rare  guests, a day which will remain forever in their minds.

Kaundu School for Mentally Handicapped was privileged to host a prominent person who according to them, is a step away from H.E Uhuru Kenyatta, Kenya’s 4th head of Nation.

Kaundu, is among the two special schools in Mwingi North which have been very beneficial especially to children who are gifted differently.

The helpful center that started in 2003 currently has 80 learners where according to the school Head teacher, Mr. Kiswii, the learners are equipped with various skills ranging from, capentry,knitting, salon activities, among other value adding skills in their lives.

However, the school has been struggling to ensure they beat all odds despite various impediments.

National Funds for the Disabled of Kenya Board of Trustees Chairperson, Kristina Kenyatta Pratt commissioned a dining hall and two classrooms at the special school, a way of solving infrastructural hiccups in the school.

“I plead with parents who have disabled children at home to take them for assessment so that they can be identified thus fully enjoying government’s support,” urged President Uhuru’s elder sister.

In addition, Madam Pratt urged parents with such children to ensure they are counted in census exercise to help government recognize the number of such persons and help them accordingly.
