Tumutumu School for the Deaf a public primary school located in the Mathira Constituency, Kirimukuyu Location, Mathira Division within the Nyeri District of Nyeri County in the Central Province of Kenya. It is a Boarding School for both Boys and Girls that caters to students with special needs. As the only school for the deaf in the vast Nyeri County in the foothills of Mt. Kenya, this organization is a vital community support that offers sources of hope and opportunity for many families across Kenya.
The Tumutumu School for the Death serves children from age 5 up until their early 20s. They offer specialized vocational training as well as the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), a diploma signifying the completion of high school.Among the most clear successes of the school to date in the eyes of Ms. Ochieri is a student like "Peter". When she first met him, not many thought he would ever be able to help is family or attain much in life. Despite these circumstances and under the watchful eye of Ms. Ochieri and Deputy Operations Manager Daniel Mutero, Peter blossomed, first earning his KCPE, then going on to college at Mt. Kenya University before finishing a Masters Degree and returning to teach at Tumutumu as a licensed mental health and educational facilitator. With increased funding, the Tumutumu School for the Deaf in Nyeri County, Kenya will be able to better fulfill its vision: "To be an institution which identifies, nurtures and empowers deaf children to fully exploit their true potential." Your contribution to Tumutumu School for the Deaf helps them to achieve net social impact of improving the lives of children with special needs.
