CPPD Programme Moves to L'Arche Kenya
On April 1 2019, the Community Programme for People with Disabilities (CPPD) moved to L'Arche Kenya. This was in line with the integration timeline guiding the transition of CPPD from St. Martin C.S.A to L’Arche Kenya. The programme changed its title from CPPD and will henceforth be known as "Disability Outreach Programme".
With the help of paperboard
The Community Programme for People with Disabilities (CPPD) was invited to participate at the Kenyatta University Disability Awareness Day taking place on March 22, 2019. Especially the Applied Paper Technology (APT) drew interest from Hon. Dr Isaac Mwaura, C.B.S M.P, a former M.P and currently a nominated senator representing the people with disabilities in the Senate.
The Importance of Participating
Recently the Community Programme for Peace and Reconciliation (CPPR) launched an activity geared towards mobilizing members of the public to participate in the county governance. It aimed to educate and sensitize the public on the importance of participating in public life, especially during the budget-making process.
