Bringing hope and raising voices for children with disabilities through speech-language therapy, advocacy, and education.

About This Field Partner


1 in 7 children in Uganda are living with a disability. Many of them have never received the therapy services that they desperately need to live full, meaningful, and happy lives. We’re on a mission to change that!

Children with disabilities in Uganda are often hidden away from society, abused, and sometimes even killed. Across Africa, as is the case in many developing countries, there is a significant lack of information and education about disabilities. 

Our work focuses on providing speech therapy; advocating; educating; and training parents, organizations, and up-and-coming speech therapists working with children with communication challenges. Through these trainings, we equip Ugandans with the knowledge and skills they need to encourage speech and language development for their children.

Our Desire is to see families and communities empowered to defend the rights of children with disabilities.
