Did you know...
AbleChildAfrica started out in 1984 primarily to assist children in the Ugandan Civil War. In the early 1990s we began community work in Uganda, so that attitudes towards disabled children could begin to change. As we grew, and our expertise continued to be in demand, we expanded and now work in Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Rwanda. Over the past year we have reached over 8,500 children and have ambitious plans to work with further African countries to ensure that thousands more disabled children and their parents experience less stigma and discrimination as a result of our work.
What makes AbleChildAfrica different
Around 1 in 7 of the world’s population, or 1 billion people, is disabled. This is the world’s largest minority. In Africa, up to 98% of disabled children remain out of school. We are the leading UK charity working exclusively with and for disabled children in Africa.
