Pioneering education for blind students

The Rwenzori Association of Parents of Children with Disabilities (RAPCD) opened a primary school in 2010 for 15 blind or deaf children in Kasese, Western Uganda. From humble beginnings, this school has grown to almost 200 pupils who have a range of disabilities. It has earned recognition as one of the best special needs schools in Western Uganda. RAPCD has also built a secondary school so its students can continue their education. Both schools are funded by Accomplish Children's Trust. 

Medical Missionary News (MMN) provided a generous grant last year to supply both schools with Braille textbooks and the equipment to produce Braille transcripts. This has transformed the quality of teaching for blind students. 

Accomplish trustee Sue Baldock has written an article in MMN's June 2020 magazine about RAPCD's schools and how their facilities for blind students have developed. Please click on this link or open the PDF below to read her article.

We would like to thank MMN and its supporters for bringing about life-changing education for many blind children, now and for several years to come.
