Our Story

KCBRP started in 2004 as a department of the Anglican Diocese of Kagera, supporting People with Disabilities (PWDs) in Karagwe District. Since 2004, we have supported 10,000 people with Assistive Devices, Surgery, Medication, and Education services, Vocational Training, Income Generating Activities and Counselling. Families have been empowered to establish their own associations. The work ahead of us is to lobby and advocate for inclusive education and health care for people with disabilities throughout the region.

Our Champions

"It is really the best mechanism to fulfill, with integrity, a promise to serve children living on the edge in Karagwe, Tanzania and to support them with the care they request as they pursue their dreams." Melanie Bielfield

KCBRP was introduced and came into contact with our champions Kathy Hansen and Melanie Bielefeld in 2006 through a friend who was working with UNHCR in Karagwe, in Kagera Region, Tanzania. Since then our champions, Kathy and Melanie have been involved with KCBRP’s CBR work including visiting and supporting KCBRP’s outreach clinics. Passionate with KCBRP’s grass root work to serve CYWDs living in poverty, the champions have been able to raise funds through Tunaweza Fund to support the implementation of outreach clinics and rehabilitation services for CYWDs.
