A team of Accomplish trustees and volunteers are currently in Uganda visiting our partners and projects. First stop: SADICH!
SADICH (which stands for Save the Disabled Child's Home) is based in the rural area of Kagando, near Kasese in South West Uganda, close to the foothills of the Rwenzori mountains. It runs a vocational training school for young people with disabilities, teaching hairdressing, carpentry and tailoring. Juliet (pictured below) teaches hairdressing and is learning sign language to better communicate with her deaf students. SADICH is also teaching sign language to parents whose children have hearing difficulties.
Accomplish has assisted SADICH to buy farmland, which it will use to grow crops to feed students at its vocational school, thereby becoming more self sufficient. The Accomplish team got their hands dirty planting bananas this week!
SADICH manages an epilepsy outreach programme in conjunction with Kagando Hospital and coordinates additional community outreaches to locate families whose children have disabilities and advise them on medical care. The epilepsy clinics have been nothing short of life changing - diagnosing, writing prescriptions and providing medication to hundreds of people for the first time. George, our epilepsy clinic driver, is pictured below, joining the local kids in colouring and making jigsaws during an outreach this week.
