Project 3 - Physical Therapy: Tanzania Matumaini School for Children with Disabilities

Physical Therapy Program for Disabled Children

The Salvation Army Matumaini School is the largest in the country that serves children with disabilities and albinism. There are currently 201 children attending the school.  80% are disabled and 20% albino. The school was established in 1969 and has served as a safe place of learning for the most vulnerable populations in the country. Most of the children have significant disabilities, including: missing limbs, deformed limbs, hands or feed, and stunted growth. The school has established a physical therapy center to provide rehabilitation and muscle development for the physical welfare of the children. Many of the children arrive at school literally on the backs of their mothers and have no mobility or footwear. Your gift will help support funding for not only rehabilitation and therapy equipment but also allow them to purchase supplies for making footwear and artificial limbs. 

A group of mothers, worried about the education of their children since most

members of the community were illiterate, asked The Salvation Army to create

a school support program for their youngsters. The Rayito de Luz Center was

created in 1994. Its main objective is to improve the academic performance of

children through tutoring. A $25 gift will go toward providing tutoring

for the children of this community
