About

I got involved in the Mbeere Mothers Union's project to build a secondary school for the deaf without really knowing what I was getting myself into. I have learned so much over the last 3 years of helping lead the UK support of Project Riandu. Having initially thought it sounded a worthwhile goal my desire to see change bought about has only increased. Statistics like the 300,000 deaf children and teenagers in Kenya formerly only having 5 secondary schools to attend put the project in perspective while stories like that of Simon, a student who became deaf a year ago and is now at the school or Jane who was out of education for 8 years until now this school has started near enough for her to attend.
I have the joy of being involved once more in 2016 when the school wants to build a dining hall and some staff accommodation.

Project Riandu 2016

Project Riandu aims to combat the lack of secondary school education for deaf people in Kenya. Invited by Mbeere Mothers Union, we are supporting construction of a school for 200 deaf teenagers in eastern Kenya and we'd love your help! In Kenya there are an estimated 300,000 deaf children and teenagers. While at primary level there are 72 schools, at secondary there were only 5, leaving deaf people lacking in education and communication skills.This year they're building a dining hall, staff houses and completing a dormitory. We'll be doing sponsored challenges, arranging fun events, holding stalls at conferences and festivals all to raise awareness and finances to facilitate real change to the lives and opportunities of deaf people in Kenya. This is the last volunteer trip but not the end of the project. The Project Riandu community will continue fundraising: gradually decreasing as the local capacity to sustainably support the project grows.
