In Uganda people with a disability live very isolated, especially the children. The are abandonned to their fate and there are hardly any provisions for them to make their lives somewhat more enjoyable. This is especially the case in Ndegeya. Children are often locked away at home; having a disabled child is a taboo. These children have no prospect to a better life.
