Bomet Governor Prof. Hillary Barchok has made a commitment to fully support special needs children by supporting special needs institutions.

Barchok said the County Government of Bomet was keen on ensuring the implementation of deliberate plans to provide for the needs of children who are abled differently.

He was speaking when he visited Korara Special School in Bomet East Sub County, where he said the institution had exemplified hard work by posting excellent results.

The Governor said the County Government of Bomet had supported the school by providing foodstuffs, bursaries, learning materials, assistive devices, sanitary towels, water tanks, and other necessary interventions.

The management of the school requested the County Government of Bomet for intervention towards the purchase of land for expansion, the construction of an Early Childhood Development and Education class, and the deployment of a teacher for the same.

Barchok heeded the request before officially opening two ablution blocks, one for boys and another for staff, which are both compliant for people with disabilities.

The Governor was accompanied by the County Executive for Education Agnes Ngeno, Education Chief Officer Dr. John Keter, his Social Services counterpart Pauline Korir, and Area Member of County Assembly Stephen Chang’morik.
