Kampala School for the Physically Handicapped
New Kiln for KSPH
Kampala School for the Physically Handicapped (KSPH) was once the only operating school for physically & mentally challenged children in Uganda. This year it celebrates its 50th anniversary and is still a beacon of hope for children so easily ignored. Today, its 40 staff members and numerous volunteers serve nearly 200 children at the boarding school. KSPH provides a formal education through Primary 7, physical therapy & rehabilitation, and vocational training. Its mission is to educate, rehabilitate and equip physically handicapped children for self-reliance and development. It has radically changed the perception of the physically challenged in Uganda.
11 years ago a kiln was donated to the school for the vocational training program at the school. KSPH became the only manufacturer of ceramic beads in Uganda. For nearly a decade the kiln provided a unique avenue for artistic pursuits, marketing and income for both students and the school. Unfortunately, last year the kiln failed to the point that further repairs were deemed untenable and ceramic bead making at the school has come to an end.
Help us raise $6000 in 2020 for a new kiln!
