Mathare Special Training Centre is appealing for food donations from well wishers following the food shortage that has hit the school.
The Centre’s Principal Pharnice Musima says the government is yet to process this year’s funds meant for the running of the school for children with special needs.
According to Musima, the centre is also facing transport issues as it only has one bus that is used to transport a population of 181 students to and from school.
Musima says the condition of the school has deteriorated over the years after the school’s partnership with the Finnish government expired in 2015.
Musima has also accused the government of failing to issue a clear directive on transition plans as some of their students have out grown the center and needs to be supported in finding places of work.
Some of the skills instilled in the government sponsored school include capentry tailoring and arts in their trainees. It also has a farming department as it owns a greenhouse.
