This artwork by Tendo is part of our cooperation with the Uganda School for the Deaf (USFD).
The Ugandan School for the Deaf was the first school for the Deaf in Uganda. It was established in 1959 by the Uganda Society for the Deaf at Namirembe Hill on leased land from the church of Uganda. A Government-aided Primary school brings together all categories of Deaf children, including Deaf children with multiple disabilities. The school’s primary task is to cater to the education, interests, and special needs of deaf children in Uganda.
We also know that through your support with a purposeful purchase. You will enable us to raise funds to buy more art materials, support the initiation and running of the art club at the USFD school, and establish a sustainable platform that will nurture and grow their potential in art.
If you are looking for a way to support us, we encourage you to purchase artwork. 70% goes towards the children, and 30% will be invested back into our work.
