Summary

The project will pay school fees, requirements and other basic needs of identified children with disabilities, in rural areas a child born with a disability is destined for a life of dependency. Disabled children can be a social, financial, mental and physical burden to their families. Through lack of knowledge and skills of the family, the children do not get the appropriate help they need. The children do not go to school and hardly leave their homes.

Challenge

According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), 98% of children living with disabilities in low and middle income countries are not enrolled in school. The Uganda Society for Disabled Children (USDC) estimates that one third of all children out of school in Uganda are children with disabilities. Despite the Government's emphasis on inclusion of all children, enrolment for children with disabilities in schools remains low.

Solution

This funding will enable 10 children with special needs to go to school as the project finds another alternative to raise money locally to cater for the children's needs next year. Keeping children at school enables them to complete the education cycle, all these kids are bright and have kept on getting the best grades that have enabled them being promoted to new classes.

Long-Term Impact

The children have kept on making their own money for their education and other basic needs at home, they will grow up responsible men and women who will be job creators other than job seekers. The skills they get at school will enable them put in practice what they already practice at home.
