IN UGANDA, CHILDREN WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES  ARE, NEGLECTED, ABUSED AND HIDDEN AWAY.

What if you’d never heard of Autism? What would you think when you saw a child rocking, humming, not speaking to you? What about Down Syndrome or cerebral palsy?

 

In Uganda, there is a severe lack of awareness about cognitive or developmental disabilities. In fact local language has no word for “Autism” or “Down Syndrome.” Instead they use words like cursed or possessed.  Still today children remain hidden, locked in homes, victims to inhumane traditional healing practices,  institutionalized and excluded. These are the world’s most vulnerable children, and they have been forgotten.

 

Until now…

 

embraceKulture is working to create a world where all children and their families are accepted and embraced.
