The idea of coming up with Small Homes begun in the early 1980 when Catholic Diocese of Eldoret was still under the Apostolate of Kisumu. During this period, polio disease was rampant. Learning facilities for children that physically challenged were not existence. There was need therefore to cater for these children.
