In partnership with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Adara implements Baby Ubuntu across Nakasongola, Luwero and Nakaseke districts in Central Uganda.
In Uganda, there are very few resources for children with a disability. Parents are often ostracised from their community, feel unsupported, and at times, hopeless.
Baby Ubuntu is an early intervention programme that aims to improve quality of life for children aged between six months and five years at risk of neurodisabilities and their caregivers. The programme provides emotional and practical support, empowering caregivers to maximise child development, health and quality of life. This community-based programme is led by healthcare workers and expert parents that have a child with a disability.
