Speaking after laying a stone at the building, Machakos County Deputy Governor who was the Chief guest noted the school has been without a library for a long time.
He lauded LG and the Habitat for Humanity for investing in the school, noting that it will be a relief to the students.
"We believe the construction of the library is going to the students who are deaf here to access more resources for learning, and we also believe it is going to promote a learning culture," Maliti noted.
The deputy governor has added that the county government will continue partnering with organizations to benefit the people of Machakos.
He has promised that the county government will award the learners with bursaries challenging the board lias with the county government so they can benefit when the government is giving out bursaries.
The initiative aims to enhance learning infrastructure, water, sanitation and hygiene for 225 ear-impaired children at the Machakos School for the Deaf and 400 Early Childhood Development learners at Kyumbi Primary School.
LG Electronics Managing Director for East and Central Africa Sa Nyoung Kim, during the event, said the company is focused on investing in underprivileged communities.
He noted that they had had a similar initiative at the Kyumvi Primary school, Mavoko Constituency.
"In December, LG again partnered with Habitat for Humanity to launch a similar initiative at the Kyumvi Primary School in Mavoko Constituency. LG believes in investing in increasing social value by investing in underprivileged communities, this project at Machakos School for the Deaf and Kyumvi Primary School are important for us," Kim said.
