KIPPRA, in collaboration with the National Council for Persons for Disability (NCPWD), visited Kipsaina Primary School in Elgeyo Marakwet County on 17th March 2020. The visit was part of preparations for KIPPRA’s upcoming regional conference in June, which will focus on enhancing inclusivity through empowering persons with disability.

During the event championed by the Environment and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) committee, NCPWD doctors assessed learners for issuance of disability cards. The visit also provided useful information for a CSR event KIPPRA plans to undertake later to support learners with disability. Kipsaina Primary School integrates learners with various physical disabilities.
During the exercise, a total of 29 learners were assessed and their reports forwarded to the NCPWD office for processing of cards.
