The Students were able to perform outstanding performances which show cased their talent and proved Disability is not Inability,with that KIPPRA Board Chair Dr.Linda Musumba encouraged the students by citing various successful people who had disabilities but were able to rise above it all and achieve their dreams and aspirations and become successful and impactful people in the society.
