Overcoming Stigma of Disabilities in South Africa
by Uhambo
 
Children with disabilities, their parents and caregivers in rural areas of South Africa have limited access to the medical care they need. Well-designed wheelchairs are key to achieving independence and social inclusion. A shortage of trained caregivers, lack of funding by the government, and lack of understanding about disabilities also create challenges. Through Uhambo's grassroots and holistic programs, some of the most vulnerable people in the world, children with disabilities, are served. project reportread updates from the field

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
