Many people living with disabilities in Uganda continue to face stigma and discrimination, and in northern Uganda, 80% of people with disabilities were identified as living in chronic poverty.
We are trying to change this.

What we are proud of

We are very proud of our collaboration with the Ministry of Education and other large organisations in Uganda to develop the teachers resource book for 'Inclusive Education in Uganda: The Child-to-Child Approach'. Through our partner, USDC, we have partnered with the Ugandan government to develop and test the guide in three northern Ugandan districts prior to a national roll-out. Through this partnership, we have participated in high level conversations on how the teacher’s guide links to Uganda's wider Inclusive Education policy, particularly examining the existing gaps in early identification systems and learning outcomes of children with disabilities in school.
