Earlier this month, Mid-Derbyshire MP Pauline Latham, East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow MP Dr Lisa Cameron along with Ribble Valley MP Nigel Evans joined Department for International Development (DFID) Kenya Head Pete Vowles to visit the Little Rock Inclusive ECD Centre.
The three politicians, who are all members of the International Development Parliamentary Committee, were in Nairobi to visit the DFID Kenya office, but took advantage of their time in the capital to visit projects in the area, including Little Rock ECD Centre, a partner school of UK charity AbleChildAfrica.
During the visit, the British MPs enjoyed a guided tour of the school grounds, spoke personally with Lilly Oyare, Director and Founder of Little Rock, met some of the Little Rock teachers and some of Little Rock’s pupils and recent graduates.
British charity AbleChildAfrica, who support the centre, work exclusively with and for disabled children and their families in Africa, and are the leading UK charity to do so.
Their mission is to promote the realisation of equal rights for disabled children and their families in Africa and to facilitate their meaningful inclusion in all aspects of life.
This is achieved by working in partnership with locally registered and independent African organisations to provide direct services such as health and education, as well as by engaging in advocacy and influencing work in the UK and internationally.
