Health: He has not had any health problem while in school. When schools closed I took him home. He will spend the holiday at home with the other siblings.
7 pupils sat for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education. RELOCATION of the Resource Centre - have been looking for ideal location to relocate the resource center to a more central place where all the youth can be able to access. Waiting for a new building in town that is yet to be completed because it is in a good place.
The main reason why we wanted the resource center to be relocate to town is because we have many youth in the south side of Kisii town and its environ and are to able to come to the resource center due to transport cost. We want all the deaf youth to be able come to the resource center.
