Accomplish Children’s Trust
RAPCD is supported by Accomplish Children's Trust (ACT), a registered charity in England and Wales. It was established to support the work of RAPCD and SADICH (Save the Disabled Child's Home) - a sister organization also operating in west Uganda -, but is now branching to work with disabled children and their families in other areas of Africa.
Whenever a child needs appropriate medical care, we refer them to Kagando Hospital, about a 30 minutes drive from Kasese Town. This hospital is considered one of the premier medical facilities in the Kasese area, and was founded by Anglican missionaries.

Organized Useful Rehabilitation Services, simply OURS, is our main partner in supporting children’s health. The rehabilitation center is located in Mbarara, and runs a community based rehabilitation program for children with disabilities in addition to a well-equipped hospital.
Motivation Africa's partnership with RAP-CD is the current MoU partnership signed. MotivationAfrica is currently providing Parent and Carer Training programmes which provides an introduction to a child's disability, including basic healthcare and helping them with everyday activities. Through these courses, many parents begin to see their child’s potential for the first time.
It also provides training and support to parents for setting up group savings schemes and developing income generating activities.
These projects have been hugely successful and demand is extremely high. Through peer group training and the development of wheelchair services, we aim to give much-needed support so even more children can be mobile, healthy and included.
