Working with disability activists.
ADD International always works in partnership with local disability activists and their organisations (also called Disabled People’s Organisations or DPOs). This ensures that our work is a true reflection of the real needs of disabled people.
The organisations hold regular meetings with their members throughout the year to discuss their plans and aims, and attend annual meetings with ADD International to plan and agree the next 12 months’ work.
Among others, in Uganda we support the following organisations:
- National Union of Women with Disabilities of Uganda. Follow them on Facebook.
- National Union of Disabled Persons of Uganda. Find them on Facebook.
- Legal Action for Persons with Disabilities. See their Facebook page.
- Elgon Foundation of People with Albinism. Get updates on Facebook.
