Another Step Towards Impact

Dear Friends,

It has been a while since we touched base,alot has been happening from our end too and we feel it is important to let it out through this small note.

As an organization,we have curved a niche in working with youth with disabilities throughout the country with a registered successes and challenges too.Given this background,it has been on our stakeholders proposition that we include issues of children with disabilities in our work since this is an area that many organizations working on disability issues tend to skip.

Our management did review this proposal and are glad that this component of work is going to synergise with the kind of progress already made working with youth with disabilities.

In the coming months,we are looking forward to supporting several children with disabilities access mobility aids and rehabilitation services to enable them grow up as independent individuals.We have already approached three schools taking care of such children and currently working on modalities of working together to create a better environment for their growth both academically and socially.

Some of our strategies will be using arts as a form of therapy and rehabilation,sports amongst others.

We thank you for the support you have accorded us thus far and do extend our invitation to you to partner with us in advancing this new strategy of supporting children with disabilities.
