Ubuntu Kids is empowering children through education and health care.

 

our Goal

To provide access to essential services and promote social inclusion for children with special educational and physical needs throughout Kenya. To achieve this goal, Ubuntu Kids supports two key programs, the Ubuntu Special Needs Centre (SNC) and Ubuntu Health.

 

Ubuntu Special Needs Centre 

Provides physical rehabilitation services and individualized learning programs for full and part-time students while mobilizing a network of advocates for child rights and special needs inclusion throughout Kenya.
