All children, including disabled children, have the right to play, learn, and be included. But most children with disabilities in rural areas of Africa do not have the opportunity to explore the world around them. Give older youth with disabilities throughout rural parts of Africa a chance to gain social and livelihood skills through Uhambo's award-winning Ndinogona "I Can" Program that provides training to generate income by making handicrafts, in addition to learning valuable social skills. project reportread updates from the field
