Rosemary Nambooze
Posted March 25, 2014 from Uganda

About Me: Am a community development worker, with 11 years of working experience in both local and international organisations in Uganda. My major field of specialty has been with women and children, through community programs of increasing access to water and sanitation facilities and also working with vulnerable children ... in particular disabled children. Am the founder of Angel's center for children with special needs in Uganda an organisation that advocates for the rights of children with disability and increasing access to services to children. I hold a masters degree in Globalization and Development from the university of Antwerp- Belgium( 2010-2011). I currently work with children with disabilities striving to see a society which integrates children with special needs to fully realize their potential. We want to be the voice and break the silence of disability and stigma associated to it.

My Passions: Children

My Challenges: Seeing the rights of children abused

My Vision for the Future: Give disability a human face in Uganda

My Areas of Expertise: Gender mainstreaming in projects
