Challenge

Many children suffer from brain damage especially those depending on traditional birth methods and hence common during pregnancy, during childbirth or after birth up to 3 years. These children usually not able to walk, talk, eat or play like other children. Major threats faced by these children include lost educational opportunities, lack of social and emotional support for healthy psychological and social development, increased stigma, lack of adequate food, and lack of representation.

Solution

The project will provide special education, therapy, special diet and toys to disabled children, train caregivers and families in taking care of these affected children and sensitizing communities and families in acceptance of disabled children and the need to go to clinics for births. It will also advocate for access to education and health services by affected children.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help 230 disabled children access special education, health services, therapy, social aspects and appropriate diet and train 230 families and caregivers in child care, support and therapy, and also advocate for rights of these children with duty bearers. Disabled children shall be helped to reach their maximum possible potential to take care of their lives when they grow up and government ministries taking up this project role.
