Karambi Group of People with Disabilities was founded in 1995 by a group of people with disabilities in response to the discrimination, isolation, exclusion faced by people with disabilities within the society, and the environmental management crisis within Uganda.
We operate in the Rwenzori Region which is found in Western Uganda in the Kasese district. We work in Six Sub Counties of Kasese which are – Karambi, Isango, Nyakiyumbu, Ihandiro, Kitholhu, and Bwera, and two town councils -Mpondwe Lhubiriha Town Council and Kanyatsi- Kithoma town council.
Our organization serves people living with different disabilities (the deaf, the blind, the physically disabled, the little, albinos, the epileptic, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, and the people affected by leprosy) we also help children of people living with disability and families living with people with disabilities and we also focus on engaging Schools, community farmer groups and the low-income households.
Our Core Values
We create an enabling environment in the community that does not make persons living with disabilities unable to access social services and information.

Whatever we do is in respect of humanity and the earth.
Disability is not Inability
We believe that if persons with disabilities are given skills, knowledge, and resources they can be able to transform themselves and be the change.
Transparency and Accountability
