Kitega Community Center - What We Do

Kitega Community Centre was founded to end discrimination and prejudice against disabled children and to give the children the tools and self-confidence to live dignified and productive lives. Many children with disabilities were suffering from marginalization and rejection from their families and communities. People were calling them all sorts of names and linking their disabilities to evil spirits and curses. As a result, the disabled children were denied the basic care and opportunities that non-disabled children received.

Today, the Centre provides a wide variety of programs to foster the educational, social and emotional development of mentally handicapped children and children with development disabilities. Most of the disabilities are a result of preventable causes, but because of poverty, illiteracy and lack of health education, many families cannot prevent them. This is why the Centre also places an emphasis on raising awareness about health issues. In recent years, the Centre has started to recruit health volunteers and medical donations in order to improve access to healthcare and prevent problems that could cause development and learning disabilities.

The children have made amazing progress, and every day they are showing that “Disability is not Inability.” They have motivated us to reach out to more disabled children.
