In Uganda, disabled children are denied rights and access to education, and are so underprivileged in communities. This three years project is designed to improve the livelihoods of children with disability in Bugweri District eastern Uganda through provision of education support to 300 disabled children, empowerment of households with disabled children with sustainable income generation project and advocating for their rights to education.
Care takers of Disabled children particular in Bugweri district are relatively poor and lack awareness on the rights of disabled children. This makes parents abandon their disabled children in homes as they assume it's a burden. As a result, these disabled persons are denied right to education by their parents and are denied the necessary education requirements and other basic needs. The project seeks to provide the necessary education and basic requirements for 300 disabled children.
300 Disabled children will be supported with educational materials such as scholastic materials, uniforms; Prosthetics, nutritional supplements, medical care and psychosocial support to enable them have a conducive environment and necessary requirements to attain netter education. There will be advocacy meetings with local leaders and district technocrats that will ensure sustainability and continued support to all disabled children to increase sensitization and awareness creation.
The project seeks for funds to improve the literacy levels of disabled children to enable them have a self-reliant and sustainable livelihood. The project will also support in the advocacy of rights for the disabled children who will later become empowered adults.
