Special Mothers Project to support Centres
Accra, The Special Mothers Project, an advocacy and awareness creation programme on cerebral palsy will be donating mobility equipment and devices to selected educational Centres that accept children with cerebral palsy.
The donations is to encourage more schools to accept children with cerebral palsy and thus to practice inclusion.
Mrs Hannah Awadzi, Executive Director of the Special Mothers Project said the project with the support of Farm4life, an international charity that empowers individuals and organisations and PhysioNet an organisation that aims at providing physiotherapy and mobility equipment for the disabled in developing hopes to encourage more schools in Ghana to accept children with cerebral palsy.
Children with the condition are usually refused admission into schools and families raising children with cerebral palsy in Ghana usually feel excluded because there are no policies that support inclusion.
Mrs Awadzi appealed to teachers especially those in the basic schools to accept and work with children with cerebral palsy to enable families raising children with cerebral palsy have an enhanced life.
