Non Governmental Organization working with people with disability in community development are appealing to Migori County Government to give first priority to the students living with disability in their sponsorship program for students joining form one this year.
Speaking to Kisumu News in Migori, the National Chairman Network in Disability and Community Development (NDCD) Migori County Mr. Bernard Ochuodho said that the threshold requirement of 350 marks should be lowered to 250 marks for the disabled persons.
He said most of the people living with disabilities may not be able to hit the threshold mark but should also be given a chance like any other child.
Migori County has started rolling out a sponsorship program that will benefit the less fortune and orphans who have achieved 350 marks in their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education yet cannot manage to proceed with their education.
The NGO is also asking Governor Okoth Obado to reserves the County Executive Committee Member for Environment seat which was left vacant following the demise of Dr. Polycarp Atinga who was serving in the position up to the time of his death last week to the people with disability.
Mr. Ochuodho said that reserving that post to a person living with disability would be a great respect to late Dr. Atinga who has been representing the disabled in the County Government of Migori.
