Taking healthcare services away from institutions and delivering them directly to the community. Observing parents and career interacting with their child and providing them with the help and advice they need, promoting early intervention and teaching appropriate techniques specific for the individual family and child.
Medical, Therapy and Nutritional Support
We work with a number of hospitals and different care service providers to make medical and nutritional services more accessible to all children with disabilities. We also offer therapy for our children including Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy. The parents are trained in simple therapy techniques of handling, exercise, positioning, feeding and care for their children.
Vocational Skills Training
In August 2010 we started a special class for some of our older children where they are taught different skills such as Crafts, Paper Mache, Tailoring, Housekeeping and Hospitality, Child Care, Life Skills, and Apprenticeships to help them lead independent lives according to their abilities.
The school aims to serve children with mental and/or physical disabilities who are unable to access main stream schools. The goal is to meet each child at his or her level and unlock their learning potential through tailor- made strategies. Our focus is to skill these children and offer them behavior modification strategies that can enable them get into main stream, and special schools.
Our centre is open four days a week from 9am to 4pm, for the parents and carers to come with their children to use all the available facilities.
No child is turned away as there is always room for one more!
Income Generating Activities
We believe that every parent should have the opportunity to live dignified conditions with the ability to cater for the needs of their children. With our business and IGA programs families are empowered with skills, funds and access to markets so as to improve their livelihood and house hold incomes. Over the years, Mukisa has equipped more than 500 families with different skills, ability to start and maintain their businesses
We are currently working directly in Luwero and Bussi and are partnering with a number of organizations to deliver quality and holistic care to children with disabilities and their families.
