Uganda. The forgotten.
Uganda. Our priorities.
Internships for disabled people
We create job opportunities for talented disabled people. We show that disability is not inability and convince employers to include more disabled people in their workforce.
Protecting people with albinism
We provide urgent support for people with albinism who are being hidden away, hunted and even killed for their body parts. And fund awareness campaigns, aimed at correcting misconceptions and prejudice.
Women + violence
We train girls and women in personal safety; we make sure cases of rape and assault are pursued and concluded; and we show them how to protect themselves against HIV/AIDS, because they are at higher risk.
Uganda. The facts.
16 local partners
We work with 16 disabled people's organisations (DPO) in Uganda, building their ability to confidently and effectively decide their own priorities and activities.
6,000 members nationwide
Our local parners are group of disabled people who self organise to support themselves. In this way, in Uganda, we're supporting 6,000 members.
Making a real difference
Ending gender based violence against women with disabilities; encouraging voluntary HIV/AIDS counselling and testing; organising legal aid clinics; and protecting people with albinism.
