Dear friends, with the money you donated to MPWDA, we bought school uniforms for six learners with disabilities (dresses for three girls and trousers & shirts for three boys). The beneficiaries were selected from Mpigi UMEA Primary School, a Universal Primary Education School which has over 100 learners with disabilities of different categories. This is a school which Mpigi Distirct Local Goverment allocated a teacher with Sign Language skills to ease teaching and communication for learners with hearing impairments.The boys and girls who benefited look smart. 

Thank you so much for the support to promote education among learners with disabilities. This support enables them to stay and complete school and reduces on the school drop outs.

Thank you so much

Dear friends, with the money you donated to MPWDA, we have planned to buy school uniforms for seven learners with disabilities (dresses for five girls and trousers and shirts for two boys). In Uganda, schools resumed in January after the COVID 19 pandemic lockdown and learners went back to school, but we still have learners with disabilities who lack school uniforms and do not look smart like others. We have selected learners from a government aided school where they have over 100 learners with disabilities including the deaf, blind, mental, epileptic and physical. We shall give them at the beggining of April 2022.

Thank you so much for the support to MPWDA

Dear friends, with your support to Mpigi Women with Disabilities Association (MPWDA), girls with disabilities are ready for school when the term begins in January 2022. In Uganda schools are still closed because of the COVID 19 Pandemic lockdowns. But in January 2022, schools shall re-open. The good news is that when schools open, those girls who received scholastic materials such as schools bags, pens, geometry sets, pencil and sanitary towels shall immediately join school without any challenges. The support given will enable them stay and complete school.

Thank you so much for your support, we request that you continue supporting us.

We love you

Our dear friends, because of your donations, the education future of girls 51 girls with disabilities shines. Because you supported Mpigi Women with Disabilities Association (MPWDA), girls with disabilities of different categories such as albinism, deaf, blind, mental, epilepsy, little people and physical have received scholastic materials including school bags, books, geometry sets, pens, pencils and sanitary towels for girls who experience menstrual periods.

Our country Uganda is in the lock down since June 12th to July 30th 2021 and many parents are not working because they are not essential workers. The package has helped the different households prepare their children for education when schools open after the lockdown.

When distributing, MPWDA realized the need to include boys with disabilities who are in school and also come from vulnerable families. This inclusion has enabled all the beneficiaries get the opportunity to be set for the next academic period as they have all that they need to be back to school.

More donations will benefit more of these children with disabilities who drop out or fail to attend school because of lack of scholastic materials. Your more donations therefore are very key as it impacts on the lives of those in great need and cannot afford despite the need.

MPWDA and girls with disabilities are greatful for your generous donations and unique hearts.



Thank you, thank you our good reader

Girls with disabilities given scholarstic materials, trained on like skills, sexual reproductive rights & behavioral change

By Faridah Nabbanja

Dear friends, with your support towards Mpigi Women with Disabilities Association (MPWDA) 68 girls with different disabilities including deaf, blind, mental, epilepsy, little people and physical have received scholastic materials including school bags, books, geometry sets, pens, pencils and sanitary towels for girls who experience menstrual periods. In Uganda schools were closed since the outbreak of COVID 19 pandemic and in this year 2021 learners started going back school. Despite the government efforts to take learners back to school, those with disabilities have been lacking scholastic materials because the unfortunate bit of it is that majority of children with disabilities come from poor families who at the same time have been highly economically affected by COVID 19.

Giving them a package of scholarsitc materials has enabled take such children back to school and it has brought hope to those learners who received. The parents were sincerely grateful for the support. One Rachael a parent of a girl with hearing disability said “I didn’t know that there are people with good hearts, who are elsewhere in the world thinking about our girls with disabilities, my daughter has been taking the small books I bought in a polythene bag, indeed this is great, unbelievable, as parents we need to love and give priority to these children with disabilities for them to complete education”

With your donations also 32 girls with disabilities were trained for two days in Nkozi Sub County on life skills, sexual reproductive health rights and behavioral change. The training also included 18 Peer Educators (these are girls without disabilities) who advocate and support girls with disabilities while at school and in the community. Those girls who were trained now understand their rights and they can say no to early sexual activities, can avoid teenage pregnancies and child marriage and will keep them in school and complete their education as well

The girls with disabilities reported that they are being discriminated in the community, other children without disabilities over look at them, and some teachers do not see any potentials in them yet they can. That they are also at risk of being defiled and raped therefore such information on life skills and making them understand their Sexual Reproductive Health Rights is key for their own safety and protection.

With more donations, more will benefit as the enrolled children with disabilities schools mostly in government aided institutions keep increasing due to the efforts by different players towards educating children with disabilities. Thank you very much, MPWDA and girls with disabilities feel humbled with your good hearts.

Thank you, thank you our good reader
