Waldah was a baby when she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Her mother, Lucy, didn't think school would be an option for her.

In Uganda, a staggering 91% of disabled children like Waldah miss out on primary education. They face daily discrimination that denies them their chance to learn, socialise and be a part of their communities.

Without vital schooling, these children are left with low confidence, limited job prospects and little hope of becoming independent. 

Motivation’s All-Stars Appeal will use sport and play to break the stigma around disability and ensure all children can be included.

Waldah has improved so much through playing with the other children - I am looking forward to finding out what else she can do.

Give before 3rd March 2020 and your donation to the All-Stars Appeal will be doubled by the UK government.

Our sports clubs will give disabled children like Waldah the confidence to play shoulder to shoulder with their non-disabled peers.

Our teacher training will help to create schools where differences are embraced and everyone has the chance to learn.

Our mentoring programme will teach disabled children about their rights and empower them to build positive futures.

The All-Stars Appeal will help to level the playing field in Uganda for 270 disabled children, giving every child the chance to be a champion.

If you set up a Direct Debit gift before the 3rd March 2020, the UK government will match up to three regular donations.

You can send us your donation in the post by printing off this donation form and sending it to us at the above address. Credit/debit card, cheque, CAF or postal order donations only - please do not send cash in the post. Please make cheques payable to Motivation.

Richard was seven years old when he contracted polio and started using a wheelchair. He felt alone, isolated and lost all confidence. 

But despite his low esteem a teacher saw Richard's determination and encouraged him to join a wheelchair basketball team. 

“Sport makes me feel good because I don’t feel my disability.”

Every donation to Motivation’s All-Stars Appeal will support people like Richard by using sport and play to break the stigma around disability and ensure they can be included.

Your donation will help disabled people across the developing world to feel accepted, to champion their rights and to have an equal chance at building a positive future.

The match funding from the UK government will support our All-Stars project in Uganda.
