Thanks to our donors,

We have drilled 5 clean water wells in Uganda 

Improving the lives of vulnerable children

We have developed an Arts-based curriculum for children with disabilities. To learn more about this innovative approach check out CPR4Classrooms.


Coming Soon: Curriculum to increase awareness of Gender Based Violence. This is an ARTS based curriculum designed for use in PRIMARY schools.

We still need $490 to bring clean water to Matata Village in Uganda.


VCAYA will be in Uganda in July/August 2018. One of our initiatives is to drill 2 more wells in the Teso Region. 

Thanks to some generous donors, we can drill one well in Matata. The community leaders have determined that the first well will be drilled at the school so that the children have clean water. 


However, we haven't raised enough funds for the 2nd well... we're close but need a bit more help! 

Decades of experience in training teachers all over the world guide our approach to first understand the needs of the community and teaching conditions before designing our professional development sessions for teachers and administrators seeking information on effective practices for including children with disabilities into schools.

Our guiding principles embrace the belief that all children can learn and focus on a child's ability rather than disability.  Everyone can contribute positively to society and is a valuable member of a community.


Teacher training

This is a parent group that formed in January 2014 beginning with eleven members who attended a clinic sponsored by a Grace Ann Geibel seed grant for parents of children with disabilities.
