in 2021 we supported over 11,500 children across Africa
In the DRC it is estimated that there are 7.4million people living with disabilities, and where we work in Northern Kivu 40% of children are out of school. Working with our partner, Children’s Voice, we’ve supported over 1,000 children to access inclusive and quality education.
In Ghana, Chance for Childhood was chosen as the inclusive education specialist to partner with the Ghana Education Service & the government of Ghana’s Special Education Division to deliver inclusive education in 10 schools across the Greater Accra region to support 600 out-of-school children to gain access to and thrive in education
Last year in Kenya, we launched a new project to help children on the streets thrive in school. With support from TheirWorld and our partner KUAP, we’ve used our flagship Learning Support Assistant Model to help 200 children. With 20 trained Learning Support Assistants 178 children have already shown to perform above average in their class!
In Uganda, our EQUAL programme supports children living in Kyaka II Refugee Settlement in Uganda, many of whom arrive with extreme trauma after experiencing violence and conflict in the DRC. Since September we have supported over 800 children to access inclusive education.
Since 2021 in Rwanda, we have successfully mapped 6,529 children experiencing disabilities in the districts of Huye and Bugesera. The parents of the 6,529 children have been trained in communication, feeding and other related day-to-day activities.
