This project supports children with physical & mental special needs as well as supporting their families. There are many parent support groups, drop-in centres, day care and skill training workshops
Children with special needs
Ugandan culture often places a higher value on healthy children, and commonly those with disabilities are kept out of site at home, or even abandoned by their families and cast out of their communities.
Our campaign supports specific projects working with disabled children throughout Uganda. There are home-based outreach programmes, physiotherapy, counselling, parent support groups, drop-in centres, day care, skills training workshops and provision of resources and information provided by these projects.
It will take many years to change societal attitudes, but the projects faithfully work with children and their parents/carers to develop a more independent, purposeful and fulfilled life for each special needs child.
We are proud to have partnered with the CRANE network to deliver the help needed in order to make a difference.
