Ngora School for the Deaf could offer opportunity for more children with special learning needs to be in school, however, it is currently operating with excess capacity. The enrolment has continued to decline over the years, today standing at 130, down from 200. This project will support by expanding the school’s income sources through sustainable agriculture, hence reducing its dependence on school fees collections for running operations. This will enable the charging of affordable fees for the poorest parents hence encouraging them to enrol their hearing-impaired children into school.
