Give to Wukwashi

Wukwashi Wa Nzambi is committed to seeing all children living full lives.

Wukwashi, BCT’s Zambian partner, works tirelessly to meet the needs of disabled children. It is all too common for disabled children in developing countries to be isolated, neglected and written off as useless because of stigma, ignorance and misguided beliefs. This is a real problem in Zambia. Most children living with disabilities do not attend school and many rarely leave their own homes. Wukwashi’s staff strive to convey that children with additional needs are just as valuable and significant as any others.

Wukwashi strives to see children with disabilities living life to the full

Vivi had never walked before she and her mum joined their local Wukwashi support group . Today, she can walk independently, thanks to the physiotherapy and mobility aids she accessed through our Zambian partner.

Her mum now shares God’s heart for children with disabilities and encourages her church, which hosts the group, to support and pray for Wukwashi’s work. Gradually, other parents’ eyes and hearts are opening too.

Wukwashi helps children with additional needs in a variety of ways. The team provide help in getting into the most suitable schools and also teach simple life skills, so children living with disabilities can contribute to their home life and society more generally. Wukwashi volunteers also run weekly support and physiotherapy groups where children with disabilities can play, make friends and receive the therapy they need to enhance their abilities. These groups also provide the children’s parents and guardians with vital support.
