WE LOOK AT THE ABILITY NOT THE DISABILITY

Who we are?

Ability Sports Africa (ASA) is a nonprofit grass root organization based in Gulu Uganda, that uses adaptive sports and creative arts as a platform for social inclusion, and advocacy to increase children and youth Presents, Participation and Achievements (PPA) in school and community activities/learnings, through the power of sports, ASA also focuses on rehabilitation and economic empowerment for parents with disabled children and youth with disabilities to live a dignified life. 

The organization uses a unique approach of Reverse Inclusion were children and youth with disabilities are empowered to take full responsibilities to initiate and conduct inclusive activities such as sports, creative arts and educational related activities where they involve non-disabled peers in their programs. These helps them to gain confidence, and the lost self-esteem, hence developing their physical and mental health, to enable them live to their full potential within their schools and communities which is free from societal stigma and discrimination.

Noting can stop me: menstrual hygiene for girls with disabilities (Fundraising campaign for August 2022)

Too often, periods prevent girls in our community from participating in sports, and even from going to school. While some afford disposable pads, they are expensive and many girls resort to using old cloths which are uncomfortable and can leak. Combined with the stigma around periods, this puts girls in a difficult position each month and hinders their full development.
