Provide building materials to two physically disabled girls who are heads of households in the Teso region of Uganda.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Since October of 2007 Nascent Solutions has been serving over three thousand vulnerable people in the Teso region of Uganda, some of whom have physical and mental disabilities. These victims of war and disease are usually subjected to discrimination and excluded from most of the social services available to their communities. There are basically no resources allocated for addressing their needs where they have been identified and understood.
How will this project solve this problem?
Through a local team of volunteers, Nascent will construct two three bedrooms houses by using mud bricks made by the locals and cement. Cement will be used to build wheel chair access ramps. Wheelchairs will be given to the disabled to ease mobility.
Potential Long Term Impact
Solving these two families problem helps to reduce the burden disability is putting on this society and indicates optimism that someday every disabled person will have a home and means to live sustainable lives. The house will last a lifetime.
