A little known fact about me is:
I started Mukisa Foundation as a young physiotherapist as a result of my experience seeing children hidden and stigmatised in their communities. I was determined to help them and their families lead purposeful lives.

I co-founded Mukisa Foundation in Kampala in 2006 to empower families who have children with special needs so that these children can lead purposeful lives to their full potential. Services include: physiotherapy,occupational therapy,medical clinics, resource & information. I also founded Dawn Special Children's Centre which takes in children with special needs for quality day care giving a chance to their parents to go to work or even just a break. The Special Children's Trust provides oversight & the Special Children's Forum form a national network of organisations across the entire country.
