With such comfort, these students will be able to focus better in the classroom.

“Our president is catering for the betterment of everyone and so the current school is a bit crowded. So, we are doing some extension works so that the children can be more comfortable,” the REO explained.  

The government, through the ministries of education and human services and social security, has been investing in creating conducive learning environments for persons living with disabilities across the country.

Along with creating better facilities, the administration continues to deliver improved social services.
