As a result of what we do, children enrolled in our program aged 0-8 years are able to acquire their life skills. Our services are transformative in nature. We enroll a child who can barely sit, walk or even do anything for themselves because of a brain damage and help him/her achieve their potential through our therapeutic services.

In our program we currently have 57 children who are receiving quality therapy from our therapists to ensure they gain their milestones and participate in daily life activities. Initially they were 60 children in the program but 3 have already gained their milestones and left the program, the other 57 have improved health and some acquired milestones.

Because Management of Cerebral Palsy is Long-term, we expect more children to gain their milestones and leave the program as soon as possible.We aim to continue to empower more children from low income families so they can participate in society. We hope to add 100+ more children in 2021 to our program based on funds availability.

We were also able to upgrade our facility with assistive devices and toys thereby improving our services. Parents of children we serve were happy because now their children have a chance to be more engaged, thereby improving their motor skills and sensory integration skills.

We have also Empowered Mothers of Children with Disabilities as ambassadors for change and a guarantee for success through our Mothers Empowerment Program. Mothers are the heart of the family, hence empowering them means empowering all members of the family. In the year 2019-2020 we have trained 60 mothers in-session by giving them knowledge and skills necessary for unlocking the potential of their children. We intend to train 200+ more parents in the year 2021 depending on funds availability.
