Spring of Hope is a community-based rehabilitation non- profit organisation for children with disabilities in local communities of Uganda. We currently work with 500 children and their families in the areas of education, physiotherapy, medical, sensitisation and income generating projects. Our aim is to see that these children are able to reach their true potential. Before the work of Spring of Hope began, disabled children were being abused, locked away and tied up due to the stigma of having a child who is disabled.
We will become a successful organisation when children with disabilities are accepted into all areas of community and family life in Uganda.
Spring of Hope is based in Kayunga district, Kangulumira Sub-county. We started the programme in August 2004, and the services extend to the neighbouring districts due to the need required.
