Summary

Miracle was born with Spina Bifida. Her parents were told nothing could be done to help. That all changed the day she met the KCDC team. Physiotherapists would help her strength and mobility, while occupational therapists would give her some independence. Miracle soon joined KIMS. With its inclusive ethos, KCDC is perfect for Miracle. Children are taught in small classes where teachers and therapists provide individual support. Help us give 1,000 children like Miracle the chance they deserve.

Challenge

Children with disabilities are one of the most marginalised groups worldwide. Widespread local beliefs that disabilities are an untreatable curse cause disabled children and their families to be excluded from their communities, educational institutions, and social and leisure activities. This misunderstanding of disability is a huge barrier to the progress, learning and independence of many children. In Uganda, approximately 12% of all children (2.5 million) are living with disabilities.

Solution

Each year, Kyaninga Child Development Centre (KCDC) supports more than 4,000 children with disabilities in rural western Uganda. KCDC is the only centre in the region providing these essential services and demand is growing daily. Without the life-changing therapy, rehabilitation, and education services we provide, children like Miracle would still be abandoned on a mat in the house, with no friends and no future.

Long-Term Impact

We aim to ensure that every child with a disability in western Uganda has access to adequate therapy & rehabilitation services. Furthermore, we hope that seeing children with disabilities learn and succeed, will gradually break down the barriers & stigma around children with disabilities that currently exists within the Ugandan education system. The provision of high-quality education for all, breaks the cycle of poverty, providing hope and life choices to even the most marginalised children.
