All proceeds from this event will go to supporting the Kyaninga Child Development Centre.
Based in Fort Portal, in the Kabarole District of western Uganda, KCDC was established to provide much needed high quality, specialised and affordable assessment, treatment, education and support to children with disabilities, and their families and carers, to enable them to lead more independent lives.
KCDC provides occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech language therapy assessment and rehabilitation to children aged 0-16, in order to help them to meet their developmental goals. KCDC works to ensure the children achieve their optimum potential, that maximal function is achieved and the effect of disability minimised, so that they may overcome many of the barriers that they and their families face.
Looking after children with disabilities or children with special needs places huge burdens on families and carers. KCDC also provides training, education and support to families, carers and communities in the care of children and young adults with special needs.
KCDC serves as a focal point for information, advocacy and networking for families and communities in the area, providing relevant information to empower the community to make informed decisions about their health. In addition, KCDC lobbies and advocates for fair policies and laws that affect the daily life of the disabled community through research, networking and strategic alliance building.
