The Salvation army joy town secondary school is a school for the students who are physically challenged (disabled) based in Thika Kenya.
The school contains almost 150 students who have different type of disabilities.
From my early child hood I studied in an ordinary school but immediately after clearing my primary school i started to have a very different view about my life and also about other student who are like me and all the challenges that they encounter in their life and therefore i decided to join Joy town secondary school.
As you approach the school you will meet many kids with different defects like polio,spina bifida,cerebral palsy and many other birth defects like being born without hands or legs.
The school is maintained in a Kenyan syllabus where Mathematics, pure science and arts are taught.
Music is one of the thing which makes the school famous, students usually participate in music festival whereby their perfomance is always great and most of the students are known of their beautiful voices like of angels.
Art and design is also another subject which is taught and so suprisingly those students who don't have leg can draw and paint using their legs and the out come is always very beautiful.
During my high school life I got courage and learnt so many things like a bit of playing Piano, swimming, Tennis, Poetry and above all the things I learnt the need of the other girls who are disabled just like me.
My high school journey of four years taught me so many things socially and thats why I came to know more about the girls need in General and the need of educating a disabled child.
