We met an impressive young woman in Mukono, Uganda who started a boarding school for handicapped children. Agnes started out by doing volunteer work assisting the parents of handicapped children by cleaning and washing clothes for them. Over time she began taking in children whose parents could not care for them at home. She then started a school and now has 28 children there. We provided a number of wheelchairs to her residents and have plans to assist her with constructing paved pathways on the school grounds so that they can move between buildings more easily.
