Kenya Christian School For The Deaf

Kenya Christian School For The Deaf

KCSD provides a platform for disabled girls and women, vulnerable children, and youths from socio-economically deprived backgrounds to realise their potential despite the many challenges that they face. Our goal is to support them as they take their lives into their own hands through education, play and become.

Kenya Christian School For The Deaf (KCSD} was established in 2000 to address a portion of the needs of the estimated 300,000 deaf children in Kenya who are infected and orphaned by HIV/AIDS. KCSD searches for practical ways to assist in building sustainable communities for these children, and to house and educate them so they may integrate back into the community. Sports are used as a tool for social change in inclusive education.

KCSD relies mainly on well-wishers’ compassionate support and donations.

The institution is managed by a board of directors that oversees its smooth operation.

The centre admits children ages 5-17. It also offers vocational training in confectioneries, HIV/AIDS education, and ICT skills for school dropouts and adults.

The kids that KCSD works with are deaf children orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Some of these children are under the care of their grandparents, who are often sickly due to age, environmental factors, or poverty.

KCSD works with the community as a partner to expand and improve young peoples’ access to quality education. The school delivers alternative education programs such as adult and continuing education to out-of-school youth, as well as advocacy for disabled girls and children.
