AbleChildAfrica works alongside our partners to deliver direct services for disabled children and their families. We are firmly committed to local ownership and to African led solutions to local challenges, as such each partner is firmly in charge of their own strategy and activities. Key areas of intervention for disabled children and their families include education, health, family engagement, community based rehabilitation, livelihoods, sport and awareness raising. We strive to empower local actors to take charge of and impact their own communities.
Whilst we have a direct impact on disabled children by delivering services alongside our partners, we also play an additional key role; we build the capacity and support the organisational development of our partners to enable them, over time, to become independently sustainable high impact organisations. This is why we are based in the UK and do not have our own offices and staff on the ground; we are firmly committed to local ownership and to African led solutions to local challenges.
We know this approach offers value for money to our donors and believe it has the greatest potential for long term sustainability and impact. AbleChildAfrica currently works with 6 partner organisations across four countries – Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda
