Special Children’s Trust; The Day That Was


There was no better way to spend a Saturday than with children that move my heart- special needs children. Did I say, children? Oh, it encompassed adults as well. I am forever grateful to Ms. Namaganda Florence for inviting me for this day. 12th-07-2015 was the 3rd Annual Special Children’s Awareness Day. The day was engineered by Mukisa Foundation backed up by some organizations.

It began with a walk from Centenary Park, and I was sad to miss that. Nonetheless. I did not lose out on the games that ensued at the MTN Arena in Lugogo. Words can not begin to describe the smiles on these people’s faces and how their caretakers took great care of them. Imagine over 100 individuals with various handicaps in an arena yet all they seemed were typical children having a great time. I was awed by how these men and women lovingly restrained them from running.

There were very many activities for the children and adults to indulge. They included dancing, skits, athletics (to a minimal level) and so much more.

It was amazing how they were willing to do anything regardless of their handicap. They were simply thrilled to have fun, and there was no limit set for them. The only requirement was determination, and they had that in plenty.

Life is not about how much you have but how you use what you have. That is what these handicapped persons taught me.
