Background Information

Our roots go back to 1994 when the founder Walusimbi Moses, then a secondary student witnessed the mistreatment of his cousin due to epilepsy. The stigma and abuse started within his own family and spread across communities. Moses says it was not only his cousin brother Justine who was seen as a curse due to his disability, but many other special needs children in the village were abused of their rights like education, associating with family, visitors, or even village children among others. Even though it had not registered then, the impact of Moses and friends was appreciated by the community to the extent that all special needs children were code named “Moses’s children.” 25th October is todate celebrated as our birthday because in 2003 Moses first donated some of his clothes to an autistic boy who was abandoned for death by his own family. This is what is currently termed as our GOAL (Give out and love) event.

Special Children Special People (SCSP) registered in 2013 as a grassroots non-profit organization to advocate, educate/ rehabilitate, and empower children with disabilities and families. SCSP currently operates in Kampala and Mpigi districts through supporting inclusive programs. Furthermore, SCSP empowers and builds capacity of youth, parents of special needs children, and families affected by disability. Sustainability projects include, among others, piggery, agri-farming, hand skills training, adult education, handicrafts, micro finance etc. SCSP works with parents/caretakers of special needs children, Community Based Organizations, local authorities, and national institutions to advocate and champion its causes.

SCSP firmly operates along its tagline Realizing the Potential of the Neglected, Transforming Lives’ with which we believe that vulnerable special needs people can be fully integrated into communities where they dwell and can further contribute to its advancement.
