Kyaninga Child Development Centre
Kyaninga Child Development Centre (KCDC) is based in Fort Portal, Uganda, and it offers occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, and nutritional advice. It also runs a school, a goat dairy and a wheelchair mobility workshop, as well as a second therapy centre in Kasese.
Accomplish provides a grant towards the salaries of three Ugandan therapists and a social worker, as an efficient way to reach large numbers of children, and a long-term investment in local medical expertise. Accomplish also funded the first year of KCDC's nutrition programme, in response to chronic malnutrition in the Kasese area.
The KCDC team works closely with the Rwenzori Special Needs Foundation, which is based nearby in Fort Portal and which Accomplish also supports.
KCDC was established to create equal opportunities for disabled children in western Uganda. It was founded in response to the lack of services, as experienced first-hand by co-founder Steve Williams when looking for help for his son.
