Summary

Kyaninga Inclusive Model School (KIMS) enables Children with Disabilities (CWDs) in Western Uganda to receive the wonderful gift of a high quality, life changing education, alongside children without disabilities, in the knowledge that inclusion widens horizons, promotes understanding and develops empathy in all children. Simultaneously KIMS trains teachers to become leaders in inclusive education and champions for children with disability and their families.

Challenge

Kyaninga Inclusive Model School was set up in 2020 to address the alarming reality that only 9% of Ugandan school-age Children with Disabilities (CWDs) attend primary school. Despite Ugandan Government policy being supportive of inclusive education, the reality on the ground tells a very different story - one where thousands of children, scorned by society, are kept in back rooms, tragically denied their right to socialisation, education and inclusion.

Solution

If we are to achieve a more equitable and inclusive world, in which children with disabilities can access a meaningful education, we need to stop talking empty rhetoric and start by putting into the practice the idealism that unites us. At KIMS we model the changes schools can bring about to become truly inclusive, despite the challenges such as a lack of resources and overcrowded classrooms prevalent within the overwhelmed Ugandan education system. KIMS is living proof how it can be done.

Long-Term Impact

Alongside KIMS, Kyaninga runs an Education Hub for professional development equipping Ugandan teachers with knowledge, skills, and strategies to educate CWDs in their own classrooms within the Ugandan system. The impact is transformation of learning and gradual breakdown in barriers and stigma around CWDs, leading to improved outcomes for children. The provision of high-quality education for all, breaks the cycle of poverty, providing hope and life choices to even the most marginalised children.
