Kitega Community Centre

A registered NGO in Uganda helping the disadvantaged community characterised by poverty,disease,etc.We involve international volunteers all year round, come volunteer in Uganda and change live.

Kitega Community Centre is interdenominational and serves all people without prejudice. We aim to make the world a better place by creating a healthy environment where everyone is happy.

For a long time, the centre has focused on children with learning difficulties who have been rejected by their parents. The parents believed that the children’s disabilities were linked to curses and evil spirits, and thus many parents overlooked the children’s needs, well-being, and basic human rights.

Kitega Community Centre intervened to show that with the proper educational and social-emotional support, children with disabilities can learn the skills to be self-sustaining and to make positive contributions to their families and communities.

The centre's work is organised around empowering children with disabilities to meet their full potential for a high quality of life and leveraging the community to build and support and environment of inclusivity that respects the rights of people with disabilities. Thus the centre is also involved in a number of community development projects.
