Bedding for an Orphanage for Disabled Children
Samburu Handicap Education and Rehabilitation Programme (SHERP) is a loving home for 136 children living with disabilities. Founded in 2001 by Grace Sneiya, who won the President of Kenya’s Youngest Achiever’s Award and the Human Rights Award from the Law Society of Kenya, SHERP’s goals are to provide the children with their basic needs such as healthcare and education and to work with the children’s families in hopes of the children returning home to be cared for by their families and becoming integrated within the community.
This grant provided SHERP with mattresses, pillows, sheets and blankets for the children. This marked the first time these children had ever had thick mattresses to sleep on, and they proudly showed them off to GO Founder Scott Fifer who visited SHERP in July, 2010.
