Acorn Special Needs School

Acorn Special Needs School

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.

The school will include the following:

  1. Early Intervention Centre
  2. 4 Class Rooms
  3. Occupation & Physical Therapy Room
  4. Sensory Integration Room
  5. Speech Therapy Room
  6. Arts & Media Room
  7. Training & Staff Room
  8. Administration Block

The boarding facility will include the following:

  1. Boarding house
  2. Recreational area
  3. Commercial Kitchen

Our target is $337,770 and we have raised $66,366 thus far.
