The Need: The government of Uganda declared many years ago that Uganda’s education policy is to be inclusive; so that all children should attend school, including all children with special needs.  However it is the case that many special needs children do not attend school, and some schools can offer some support but perhaps not as much as is required. Unfortunately, no-one knows how many special needs children never attend school.

The proposal to build a residential unit with teaching area, for Special Needs children: It can be very difficult for special needs children to travel to school each day, so the proposal is to build a unit on the school compound so that the children can be residential, either weekly, monthly or termly.

Inside the building, first would be a common-room where children can have extra catch-up lessons or Braille lessons or other specific trainings, where they can do their homework, eat their meals and socialise.

Behind the common room would be 2 dormitories, one for girls and one for boys. Doors at the back of the dormitories would give access to washrooms and latrines, which are for the use of special needs children only.
