Kanjeru Primary School has a total enrollment of 757 pupils, which consist of 636 in primary, 42 in special education and 79 in Early Child Education (ECDE).

For the year 2022, the school has prioritized the following projects in the Special Needs Unit:

- Construction of a Classroom Block for the Special Needs Children

Kanjeru Primary School has 42 children in Special Education. These children of both gender have challenges including, physical disability, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, speech autism among others. The school intends to have a special classroom block to cater for the needs of these children. Currently, the special needs children use classrooms built for children with no physical challenges. The classroom block will be designed to make it easier for use by those with physical disabilities. It will also be located closer to the other facilities used by the special needs children within the school compound.

- Learning Materials for the Special Needs Children

The special needs children in Kanjeru come from the neighboring poor villages. Majority of parents of the special needs children lack money to support the Special Needs Unit with learning materials. The school therefore seeks support to buy learning materials for the Unit including puzzles, boards, word picture match, thinking cards, number tracing boards, board games, skipping ropes, swinging rings among others.

To make the meals wholesome for the children, we have enhanced the feeding program at Waitua Primary School, Kenya.

Earlier for the morning snack, we used to provide a cup of porridge. Now we are providing an egg with a cup of porridge. Eggs contain various trace nutrients that are important for health and thus keep away diseases which keep children out of school.

Earlier for the lunch, we used to provide a plate of rice with beans or pigeon peas and vegetables. Now we are proving a plate of rice with beans or pigeon peas or black beans or lentils, vegetables (cabbage or kales) and fruits (bananas or oranges). Due to a variety of legumes, the lunch is more richer with iron, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper, and zinc which all contribute to building and maintaining bone structure. The diet has more protein and fibre content and thus good for the overall health of the children. #wholesomemealatschool
