Kupenda employs medical professionals, such as nurses and occupational therapists, to care for children with disabilities at their homes and schools. In addition to assessing and treating the children, many of these professionals provide parents and teachers with training on basic care skills to improve the frequency and quality of care these children receive. These professionals are able to provide care for several children each day, and do so even when the children’s schools are closed due to holidays, weather conditions, and teacher strikes. Since Kupenda secured its own vehicle in 2015, they have been able to visit even more children each day. As with Kupenda’s teaching staff, we work with leaders and communities to make these health care positions sustainable by shifting their salary payments to the local government. Each year we hire 1-3 medical professionals and each year the local government takes over employment of 1-3 medical professionals – thereby creating a continuous loop that feeds more trained health care staff into the local system.
