About us

Tunazewa Centre is a registered non-profit organization located in Kampala, Uganda. The concept for the Tunaweza Children's Center was born when one of the founders, a mother of a child with special needs, realized that there were no facilities to provide the basic training and care required by children facing similar challenges. Driven by the need to raise social awareness about the potential which children with special needs have, once provided the required tools for their education, two friends pooled their resources to open the first Early Childhood Intervention Center in Kampala. With the support of Dr. Susan Foster, a Professor of International Health at the Boston University School of Public Health and also a public
health consultant for forty years in the developing nations of Africa and Asia, the Tunaweza Children's Centre was established with an approved curriculum for early assessment and training of children with special needs in speech therapy, occupational therapy and physio therapy. The training at the Tunaweza Children's Center will be conducted by professional staff trained in handling children with Special needs and supported by volunteer's with the required public health background. The Center will also provide training for the caretakers, interested parents and onsite staff for the necessary skills transfer to ensure sustainability
