In Kasisi we pay special attention to children with motor or intellectual disabilities. Meeting the needs of this group of people is a big problem in Zambia. They usually don’t have the chance of a dignified life nor of education adapted to their needs. The reputation of Kasisi as a special home for children with disabilities has been widely spread throughout the country, which is why these children are sent here from the most remote corners of Zambia. For them Kasisi means not only salvation and a chance for survival, but also an opportunity to grow and to have access to advanced treatment methods.
Nelly is an adult. The extent of her intellectual and motor disability means that she will never be independent. Every day in Kasisi gives her a sense of security, helps her to develop her motor skills and is an opportunity to work and train her mind systematically. Nelly is happy, she rarely fails to smile. It would be hard for us to imagine this home without her, and her in a place that would not provide basic care adapted to her needs.
Joseph came to Kasisi in a very difficult state. He was practically mute and afraid of people. Months of exercises and regular daily work resulted in him being able to perform simple manual tasks, beginning to utter his first words and gaining trust in people around him.
Your commitment to the Adoptions from the Heart project means that children who had no chance of growing in life are now living in a loving and caring home in Kasisi. They receive professional care from specialists, tailored exactly to their needs. Join us in ensuring that those in special need never lack opportunities for development. If you are not ready for long-term commitment, then come shopping for Kasisi with us today. You will find sets of logopedic or sensory toys which help us in our work on the development of our pupils.
We hope that Christopher’s death, which was an unexpected tragic event for the whole Kasisi, will kick off a chain reaction of good. Because of this, we started the Christopher Sakala Fund. With this fund, we support children being treated on the oncological ward at the hospital in Lusaka.
