Special Children Special People (SCSP) registered in 2013 as grassroots non-profit organization to advocate, rehabilitate and empower children with disabilities and families.
Through rehabilitation we offer both special needs education and therapy services, orient and prepare children especially with physical disabilities for main stream school inclusion. This is important in reduction of neglect, combating stigma and abuse having it been realized that many children with disabilities have challenges to adopt into formal education due to many factors like low level of perception, low self-esteem, low egos, psychological torture among others. SCSP continues to advocate and awareness raising campaigns for the rights of person with disabilities into communities with a focus on positive attitude. Lastly we empowers and builds capacities of pwd's and families through setting up small self-sustaining enterprises like piggeries, agri-farming,micro finance, tailoring, handicrafts etc. SCSP works with parents/caretakers, children, community, local authorities and national institutions to advocate and champion its causes under its tagline ‘Realising the Potential Of The Neglected, Transforming Lives’
