Project Description

Disability Program

TORUWU looks after Disabled children in Nsangi sub-county working with about 88 mothers with disabled children. TORUWU gives physiotherapy clinics to these children every Thursday at their office premises in Kikajjo.

Disability all over the world is a touching subject and TORUWU has gone ahead to sensitise the community that disabled children are not cursed. TORUWU’s number one role is to improve the living conditions of these children and their families who live in harsh and often life threatening conditions.

When training women, the organisation did a baseline survey and realised that the women we were training had children living with disability and they would hide them at home. In addition, there were other women who remained at home to take care of their children living with disability. The organisation decided to take up this third thematic area by offering physiotherapy exercises and orthopaedic appliances to handicapped children, but also uplifting their mothers by setting up a start up around their homes so that they can not only take care of their children, but also generate income to support their families, buying medication and providing better nutrition.
