Challenge

Last year alone, we were able to help 300 children with speech disabilities and as a result we The biggest problem is that there is alot of stigma is associated with children with disabilities and as a result many children are neglected and many parents fear to seek for medical attention Hope Speaks is committed to helping children with speech disabilities in Uganda with the aim of bringing hope and joy to families with such children. Through advocacy we will become the voice of the voiceless

Solution

Open a speech therapy clinic on the affluent side of town to expand the 1-for-2 model. Open 3 additional outreach clinics in slums around Kampala. Develop partnerships with hospitals and clinics to establish newborn screenings and referral system to identify disabilities. Advocate for individuals with disabilities by planning two advocacy events to reach both individuals with and without disabilities We provide speech therapy for children from both the affluent and poor families

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate parents/ caregivers on how to care for children with disabilities. We aim to at least reach out to 500 children with speech disabilities. Children who could not afford therapy services will be catered for with our 1 for 2 model through our speech therapy clinic which will make it possible to cover our costs but also bring change and hope into hopelessness in families affected with this challenge Educating communities will help in lifting off the stigma associated
