Kyaninga Child Development Centre - January 2016 Report
2015 was a very successful first year for KCDC with 169 children and 25 adults with disabilities being treated. A further 150 adults and children were assessed and referred to other facilities. On average there were 14 new clients per month.
Only 54% of the school age children receiving KCDC services are currently in school. The others are excluded due to school fees, mobility limitations and schools unwillingness to accept children with disabilities.
The end of year party had 95 children (300 people overall) attend and every child received a gift appropriate to their needs, thanks to a grant from Accomplish Children's Trust.
So far this year, there are already 14 new registered clients and new members of staff. Jo, a British speech therapist is with KCDC for 4 months. She is working alongside a new employee, Rehema. Rehema is a nurse from Fort Portal and is being trained as a community health worker and will continue Jo’s work after her 4 months. Further to this, community outreach visits will increase to include 2 more health centre IVs in the area and create parent support networks. Once established, they will then introduce the Getting to Know Cerebral Palsy training programme, which educates carers to looks after a child with CP and other disabilities.
