This work was done in March 2003 together with personnel from the department of neurology at the KCMC. Dr. Tina Oneko (pediatrician) and Ms. Ann-Sofie Norlén (physiotherapist) visited the site of the building and gave constructive recommendations on how to use it
With regard to attending the specific needs of mentally handicapped and autistic children our objectives are the following:
- We intend to OPEN the Rainbow School at Irente.
- We intend to INCLUDE parents in educating/training children who are mentally handicapped and autistic.
- We intend to PROMOTE awareness in the surrounding community that it is everyones duty to respect the rights of children with mental handicaps or autism and support them.
- We intend to start an OUTREACH PROGRAM. We strive to COOPERATE with teachers and students in the surrounding area.
- We have the ambition to ESTABLISH a special education center with high quality.
We intend to OPEN the Rainbow School at Irente. The Rainbow School is planned to be a center for training and education of mentally handicapped and autistic children and youth. Children from Irente and Lushoto area will be provided with a good educational training according to their individual needs. By opening a school for mentally handicapped and autistic children, we do not claim that we are going to cure the children so that their disability will disappear. What we intend to do is to use our time, our knowledge and our experience in helping these children to develop as far as their capacity allows them. By doing so, there will be hope for a better future for these children.
