This October marks 50 years since Kampala School for Physically Handicapped (KSPH), the first and only special boarding School of its kind, was founded.
KSPH was the brain child of the Late Henry and Fayce Barlow, whom together with a few other Parents and Professionals formed Uganda Spastics Society to set up theÂ facility. Their goal was to Educate, rehabilitate and Equip children with Cerebral Palsy for future development.
Due to the overwhelming need, the school was opened to other children with various physical and mental challenges.
Today, the school has an enrollment of 180 pupils ranging from the ages 6 – 18 years, from all over Uganda that East African region.Â In a loving family environment, the team of 44 care takers entrusted with these children have committed to laying a good foundation to support every child t productivelyÂ develop their inner talents and abilities to attain maximum independence.
The public is invited to join KSPH as we celebrate five decades of transforming lives, breaking barriers and changing perceptions, as we chart a course to reach even more Differently Abled Children.
KSPH have organised a range of activities in the run up to the 50th Anniversary Celebrations:- An Awareness Walk, Community Work, Thanksgiving Service and a Mega Exhibition.
All are welcome to join us.
