Disabled Children Rehabilitation Project (DCRP) is a non government community based organization. It is a nonprofit making organization that was started in 2006 by Reverend George Kibwiika Magumba in Entebbe.
The major aim of Disabled Children Rehabilitation Project is to uplift the status of disabled children in Uganda by providing financial and psychological support.
The Project aims at expediting the establishment of equal opportunity and guaranteeing the principle of non-discrimination against the disabled children in societies by:
• Ensuring that the disabled children are protected from all forms of physical, sexual or mental violence and generating momentum for concrete and time-bound actions to prevent and respond to such violence and abuse.
• Carrying out preventive public education campaigns about the negative consequences of the ill-treatment of the disabled children.
• Preventing and prohibiting all forms of discrimination against the disabled children and to ensure that they have equal opportunities to participate fully in all spheres of life.
• Providing them with adequate social, health services and quality education which will later see them through life as responsible and self reliant citizens.
• To ensure human rights for the disabled children
• To give disabled children a dignified status of life
• To educate disabled children

• To equip disabled children with practical skills for earning a descent living
• To provide disabled children with necessary information to enable them make informed decisions about their needs
