KABALE –Government and various stakeholders have been asked to join in efforts to support non-profit able charity organizations in securing essential equipment and land for their operations to ease their operations.
This call was made today during the launch of a fundraising week aimed at procuring funds for the Early Stimulation Centre, a non-profit charity organization located in Rushaki ward, the southern division of Kabale district, to purchase land and equipment that will enhance the smooth operation of the organization. Constance Nowamani, an occupational therapist and the director of the Early Stimulation Centre, urged the government to contribute and assist the organization in acquiring funds to purchase the necessary equipment for the proper functioning of the organization.
Nowamani stresses that as an organization they are faced with challenges such as funds,food and equipment that would benefit in the smooth running of the organization. She adds that purchasing such equipment since most of them are expensive is difficult, hence the need for support.She added that as an organization they would need a permanent location rather than renting in different places but due to lack of funds they are subjected to renting.

Additionally, Nowamani urged the general public to always think about disabled children and prioritize their proper upbringing, such as improving the nutrition of malnourished children and also urging the government to step up and sensitize the masses about promoting the welfare of disabled children.She further revealed that they face challenges related to the neglect of children born with disabilities, as most parents don’t bother reporting back to pick up their children.
The Early Stimulation Centre is an organization focused on helping children living with disabilities lead better lives by providing therapy sessions and disability education. Currently, it serves 102 children.
