Since the Universal Primary Education (UPE) was introduced in 1997, eight million children have been able to access primary education. However, only a handful of children with disabilities have been able to study under UPE. New Vision’s STEPHEN SSENKAABA investigates the factors hindering access to education for children with disabilities and the implications for Uganda’s attainment of UPE as stipulated by Millennium Development Goal.
This four-part series was published in New Vision with funding from ACME’s Enhanced Media Reporting for Transparency and Accountability (EMERTA) programme.
