The Kenya Community Centre for Learning (KCCL) was founded in 2001 by a benevolent American lady, Astrid Robertson as a pioneer school for children with learning difficulties. This school offers alternative education for 6-21 year olds with diverse learning challenges. KCCL accepts students from all socioeconomic, cultural and religious backgrounds thus an all-inclusive atmosphere in which students explore and develop their full academic and personal potential. Kenya Community Centre for Learning (KCCL) is a non-profit making community school for learning challenged children.
Orion Foundation is systematically forging dynamic collaborations with individuals, businesses and organizations that develop and support ideas that are making a difference in the lives of children with disabilities. KCCL fits into this category of organisations as it provides specialized education for people with learning disabilities. Orion Foundation aims to work with KCCL to help improve the lives of the children they cater to.
