We are currently fundraising for Acorn Special Needs School located in Dagoretti, Nairobi, Kenya.
The current facility has, over the years, been sparsely built without a comprehensive overall plan for the growth of the entire school. There is an urgent need to accommodate the growing number of students who need twenty-four-hour attention and intervention. The new residence facility will be in a beautiful compound where the students will be able to develop their social and independent skills by participating in all the boarding activities and responsibilities.
Acorn is a programme that caters for learners with intellectual disabilities with students ranging from 0 - 4 years in the early intervention programme to those of 5 years to adults in the individualised educational programme (IEP) and vocational programme. The school aspires to accommodate 50 students in total, between the ages of 4 to adults, 30 of whom would be boarding.
