Gulu - Northern Uganda
GWBC is dedicatedly working towards empowering the PWDs in our community since the very first day of its inception in 2007, through several measures such as coaching, advocacy, counselling, referral, vocational training, (50 youths trained), and by several other measures.
We have trained, empowered PWDs peer mentors who actively implement the module and its program development to empower others.
We have imparted Knowledge and skills that improve socialization processes and promote equality regardless of disability status in communities in political, social, economic and educational spheres (e.g. educational attainment, conflict resolution/reduced violence of all kinds) .
We have changed attitudes and behaviours of participants (instructors, coaches, teachers, persons with disabilities, community groups) towards holistic and inclusive participation of PWDs in the society.
By participating in adaptive sports PWDs have had increased access to education, health, and socio-economic services keeping them more informed of segregation and discrimination issues and seek other support services.
Some of the successful collaborations provided training in literacy, numeracy, health and livelihood skills to our beneficiaries.
We have gradually strengthened the institutional capacity of local schools to respond accordingly to defend the rights of PWDs.
