Around the world, children with special needs and their families struggle for equality but in Uganda they struggle to survive. Today nearly one million children remain hidden, locked in homes, victims to inhumane healing practices, institutionalized, abused, and excluded.
WE CAN CHANGE THIS
Embrace Kulture is working to develop a culture of acceptance in East Africa, where children with special needs are embraced for what makes them unique.
Help us create a world with no more hidden children.
To create a world where all children and youth with developmental and/or cognitive disabilities are embraced and accepted for what makes them unique.
To develop the capacity of organizations serving children and youth with developmental and/or cognitive disabilities in Africa.
WHO WE HELP:
We serve the world’s most vulnerable population, children and youth in East Africa with moderate to severe cognitive and/or developmental disabilities such as Autism, Down Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy.
HOW WE WORK:
We build the capacity of local organizations in East Africa through grants, training and joint-projects to help them become leaders of the movement for acceptance in their country.
