Three new members joined Give Hope during 2015: Teresia Atieno whose daughter, Janet, is blind; Elizabeth Orese, whose daughter, Irene, is deaf; and Magdalene Ramoya, whose daughter, Faith Shalom, is also deaf. Janet and Irene had finished 8th grade but their families could not afford to send them to high school. Faith, who is eight years old, was attending the special unit of the local primary school but since children with various disabilities are all mixed up in one class, that situation was not conducive.
