About Us

Inclusion Uganda

Association for the Mentally Handicapped is a non-governmental organization that works with People with Intellectual Disabilities (PWIDs) and their families.

Inclusion Uganda was established in 1983 by a group of parents and professionals of children with intellectual disabilities who came together to find a common solution to the problems that were affecting their children both at home and the community. The organization started in Kampala but later spread out to various parts of the country. In 2003, the organization changed its name to Inclusion Uganda.

We are currently operating in 18 districts in Uganda with a local branch in each of the districts. UAMH/IU advocates for the rights of persons with intellectual disabilities through full inclusion of PWIDs in all aspects of life as stipulated in the United Nations Convention of Rights of People with Disabilities (CRPD) and the Constitution of Uganda.
