【Kenya】No Sight But On Sight ! -Climbing for Visually Impaired Children in Kenya-
NPO Monkey Magic
With the cooperation of local educational support NGOs and facilities, 75 children attending four blind schools in Nairobi participated in a climbing experience event at the first indoor facility in East African countries in Kenya from 12-16 March 2018.
On the first day, the members conducted training sessions to understand and teach methods for the visually impaired nine local gym staff. On the second to fifth day, visually impaired children and students enjoyed climbing for the first time.
The facility was filled with laughter during the event, and the children were repeatedly encouraged to practice this sport because they had great potential in climbing sport.
