Karambi Group of People with Disabilities (KAGPWD) is a non-government organization based in Mpondwe Lhubiriha, Kasese and operating in Karambi and Mpondwe Lhubiriha Town Council in Bukonzo West County. It was founded in 1995 by a group of people with disabilities in response to the discrimination, marginalization, isolation, and exclusion faced by people with disabilities within society.
KAGPWD was formed to support and create a platform for the people with disabilities to have their voices heard and to uplift their welfare and standards of living through involving them in gainful activities and influencing policy-makers and policies.
KAGPWD advocates and promotes basic human rights for persons with disabilities through social economic inclusion and rehabilitation. The group engages people with disabilities to conserve their environment, and to work together with all citizens, development actors and human rights defenders at all levels, to ensure that people with disabilities achieve their full potential.
The vision of KAGPWD is a community where persons with disabilities can enjoy their freedom.
