HELP ME SUPPORT
ADVOCACY & AWARENESS
Why I Support Embrace Kulture:
As a parent and as a human being, it’s impossible to ignore the hardships that others endure as a result of misunderstanding disabilities, lack of funding, or external factors such as government. Since visiting Africa in my twenties, I have felt drawn to make a difference to the vast social and economic disparities between Africa and the countries I call home. I’m glad to advocate for children in Uganda because all children deserve the same opportunities.
What Program I'm Passionate About:
In Uganda, children with disabilities are often hidden from communities. They are locked up, mistreated, malnourished, and worse due to cultural misbelief and a severe lack of access to information. Embrace Kulture strives to put an end to this treatment. Through our outreach programs, we educate parents and communities about how to manage disabilities. This communication is vital to the success of our work. Our goal is to achieve a situation where there are no more hidden children. Where every child is celebrated for their own unique abilities, regardless of their circumstances. And where every child can be accepted, appreciated, and unharmed.
