Summary

KCDC plans to construct a purpose-built Therapy and Rehabilitation Centre to help achieve our vision of a world where children with disabilities and their families can live without stigma and discrimination. Together, we will be able to help address the specialised needs of children with disabilities in western Uganda, by extending the care that we provide and creating equal opportunities for an additional 3,000 children across the region over the next 3 years.

Challenge

More than 13% of Uganda's 24 million children are living with a disability but only 18% of these children have access to rehabilitation services (UNICEF, 2015). Despite these alarming statistics, there are still weak functional mechanisms to address the need for adequate and reliable rehabilitation services. To date over 3,100 children have received assessment and intervention at KCDC, but shockingly this is less than 1% of the total number of children with disabilities in the region.

Solution

KCDC is the only centre in western Uganda providing specialised therapy services, through a holistic, community-based rehabilitation programme at an affordable cost for all. The new centre will allow us to reach an additional 3,000 children over 3 years through the provision of intensive and specialized therapy services, improved accessibility, multiple therapy and treatment rooms, a conference facility which will be used for training, special needs education centre and office space.

Long-Term Impact

The new centre will enhance our therapeutic effectiveness and the ability to care for more children by allowing us to hire more therapists who will provide an additional 1800 sessions per year. Within 10 years, 10,000 Children with Disabilities will experience improved quality of life, better health and education outcomes, and have the opportunity to thrive in society without fear of stigma and discrimination.
