Sylvester Ochieng, 28, is volunteering for a Kenya where all children have equal education opportunities. Children with hearing impairments face additional barriers to attending and making progress in school. He explains the impact he is seeing on his placement in Bungoma County.
Once I had completed my degree in early childhood education, I came to see the reality that children with disabilities face in achieving a quality education. By the time parents realise that it’s their responsibility to take these children to school, it’s too late.
