Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Speech and Language therapy

We partner with organizations in Uganda working with children with disabilities to provide this much needed service. We have seen children make remarkable improvement. Hope is rising because more families, communities, and organizations are learning about the availability of quality speech therapy which was not available before.

People with intellectual disabilities

We work together with like minded organizations to ensure that children with disabilities and their families have access to information and services that they need to live full, meaningful and happy lives, that their voice is heard on issues that are important to them, and to defend and promote their rights and responsibilities.

Population(s) Served
