It has been proven that People Living in Disabilities, experience unique challenges,especially on socio-economic outcomes like health, education and household income. They end up getting too many challenges when it comes to securing a stable job. Some are even stigmatized for their condition.
They are often relegated to the periphery, when it comes to planning for development and access to services.
H.E Governor Nyoro, has recognized this and has ensured targeted social inclusion for them.
He has ensured that his administration, continues to implement appropriate social protection interventions. These include the County Bursary Fund, with 12% directly targeting PWD’s. He has also provided them with wheelchairs and ensured they are registered with the NHIF.
He has reiterated that,he will continue mainstreaming Social Inclusion, to ensure no one is left behind.
