Angel’s center for children with special needs was formed after our experience in raising a child with Down syndrome. Three years of raising Abryl opened our eyes to the constraints of raising a child with special needs. The constant hospital visits and adjusting to the development challenges made us acutely aware of the deficiency of such services in Uganda. In 2012 ACCSN was registered with Wakiso district to operate as a community Based Organization to provide a space of services for children with special needs (Reg No: WCBO/1131/12). A critical service is strengthening the capacity of families to cope with raising children with development challenges.
Vision: A Society which integrates children with special needs to fully realize their potentials.
Mission: To be a voice and to break the silence of disability in communities, through increasing access to information and service delivery.
We need to give disability a “human face” despite the challenge these children remain beautiful, lovely and important to the social network of Society.
Angel’s center has currently an enrollment of 15 children from the ages of 2-12years with different disabilities that range from Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, mental retardation and communication disorders.

The aim of the project is to ensure that children with disability can have an early intervention to reduce on the barriers of disability, and to strengthen the capacity of parents to cope with raising children with disability through joint income generating activities.
