The Rwenzori Association of Parents of Children with Disabilities (RAP-CD) was founded in 2004 by Maali Wilson. It runs a special needs primary school and recently opened a secondary school. RAP-CD also conducts community outreaches to find children with disabilities and help their families, and it runs parent support groups.
RAP-CD aims to change attitudes through community education and by supporting families. For more information, please visit www.rapcd.org
The first aim is to raise money to equip the newly constructed Library with six computers costing £250 each. Accessing information technology will open minds to the possibilities of the wider world, whilst simultaneously highlighting new levels of support and resources for children with disabili-ies.
Secondly, we’re looking at a focus on the provision of equipment for the blind. The equipment includes Braille text books (£55) and Braille slates (£9) for studying, less expensive items such as games for sports and free time (audio footballs (£24), and playing cards (£4.50) and rather more expensive items like provision of a Braille Embosser (£2,000)
We are delighted that Medical Missionary News is providing some of the computers, leaving us with a goal of £3,500 for the Christmas campaign this year.
