We envision a Uganda where each child grows up in a loving family, despite his or her disability. We dream of children being cared for by parents, relatives, or neighbors whom can offer them the long-term, unconditional love, attention, and support they need. Our vision sees the end of discrimination towards children and adults living with special needs in Uganda – it hopes instead for celebration of differences. We boldly dream of the day where no more children need to be institutionalized.  And until the day comes when Ekisa’s services are no longer needed, we will stand in the gap – to give respite to children whom need love and care, and empower parents and families to best care for their children.
