It is therefore my duty as an able bodied human being to inspire all including the deaf and hard of hearing children to reach their full potential,” He said.
Mr. Masembe further reveals that the conference will look at curbing pollution of the environment using plastic wastes, restoring of wetland and planning for and protection of the environment for future use.
