Kujenga Inclusive Game Changer School is an egalitarian school. Currently, children with disabilities are being short-changed. Our message on inclusive education is simple: Every child matters coequally. We will recognize and nurture each child’s unique gifts. Access to education is extremely low for children with disabilities. We believe it does not have to be that way. Our goal is to shift that paradigm. Including children with disabilities can cause significant gains to the community and the country, helping break the cycle of poverty.
