Janet Reisinger-Miller Scholarship Fund

Janet Reisinger-MillerThe Janet Reisinger-Miller Scholarship Fund allows students with various disabilities who cannot attend the B.L. Tezza School for the Deaf to seek appropriate education. Many children in Kenya have disabilities that need to be supported at schools that are specific to their needs. These may include cognitive, intellectual, or physical disabilities. We at Hearts that Hear believe EVERY child should have the right to an education because disability is not inability. Students who receive funding from this scholarship will be able to attend schools that focus on technical training to obtain skills that allow them to further their ability to create self-sustaining lives to lift them out of poverty. In Kenya, many children with disabilities start school much later than their peers or are hidden away in their homes. We want these children in school, learning, and breaking the stigma of cultural beliefs.
