The Government Aided special needs school admits both ordinary and children with various special needs (deaf, blind, mental retardation, epileptics and physically handicapped). Underfunding limits its potential to serve the target population in Sheema district and beyond.

Furthermore, 80% of the surrounding community peasant farmers with limited income can hardly sustain the school let alone their families. The high population density of 315/Kmē in this poor community significantly contributes to environmental degradation.


They are; increasing quality education opportunities among children with disabilities; addressing the school's water and sanitation challenges; improving the pupils' nutrition status; increasing communities health and environment; and building the community's capacity to increase their household income

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
