About

Paving a pathway for education and equality for all children with disabilities in Uganda.

Raising a child with a disability is not easy, especially when you have limited resources and no community support. Children with disabilities in Uganda are often seen as a curse to the family and communities. These children typically lack parental love, are seen as having no future, and grow up as outcasts in the community. Parent education is vital to the well-being of children with disabilites in Uganda; these children are extremely vulnerable and are often used as child sacrifice for witch doctors. To help prevent this, we teach parents that their child's disability is not a curse, all about their child's disability, how to interact with their child, and how to stretch their child's muscles.
After providing parent education, Obwaagazi works with the families to discover their hidden skills, such as: farming, jewelry making, basket weaving, paper beads, weaving mats, and art. We support the families by selling their crafts and providing them with 100% profit for their work, so they can care for their child with a disability.
