We work directly with two centers;
A) FURAHA CENTRE
Furaha means “Happiness” in Swahili. Furaha Day Care Centre was founded to provide happiness and quality life to children with cerebral palsy, autism and down syndrome who are often neglected. The center offers quality day nursing care, play, meals, sensory integration and occupational therapy. It relies on from well-wishers for its daily operations.
These children are often neglected due to birth defects, resulting in poor health, malnutrition, and are often sexually abused too. Discrimination and stigma cause these children further psychological and emotional harm. Few organizations in Meru County help such young people and are not able to cater for every needy child.
The center is equipped with special therapeutic room, physiotherapy section, counseling and psychotherapy room, classes, dining hall and other necessities.
The center is managed by a Director, Manager, and staff from the community.
