Give to Wukwashi

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

It is all too common for disabled children in¬†the global south¬†to be isolated, neglected and written off as useless because of stigma, ignorance and¬†misguided beliefs.¬†In Zambia in particular, 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.


If you need proof of how Wukwashi changes young lives, just look at Silla. As a girl, Silla used to belong to one of Wukwashi’s support groups, where she and her family gained encouragement, advice and practical help in managing her disability. Now a young woman, Silla is thriving and volunteers at a Wukwashi support group, giving other children the same help she once received!

Wukwashi makes a tangible difference to disabled children, in all sorts of ways. At their weekly support and physiotherapy groups, children with disabilities can play, make friends, receive vital therapy, and even be assessed for mobility aids. These groups also provide the children’s parents and guardians with vital support. Wukwashi also helps disabled children to access education and learn simple life skills, so they can become more independent and make a contribution to their communities.
