School 4 All in Africa

Over 90% of disabled children in Africa are excluded from school. Our joint commitment can change this.

Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland (RIBI) is an association of Rotary members, clubs and districts. It is part of Rotary International, a worldwide organisation with 1.2 million business professionals and community leaders in over 200 countries and geographical areas.

The partnership with Rotary

We were delighted when Ian Thomson, RIBI President 2008–2009, agreed to support Leonard Cheshire Disability in launching School 4 All in Africa.

The partnership initially focused on making 20 schools in Uganda accessible and inclusive with a target of providing education to 1,000 disabled children. 

Thanks to ongoing support from Rotary members, clubs and districts more disabled children in Uganda and other countries in Africa are having the chance to go school, to learn and play with other children, to learn basic skills and to fulfill their potential. However, 90% of disabled girls and boys in Africa are still excluded from school and we need your support to ensure they have a chance in life.

How to get involved

As a Rotary club or an individual supporter, you can choose to donate to School 4 All in Africa, hold a fundraising event, adopt a school or volunteer with Leonard Cheshire Disability. Please contact the fundraising team or visit to find out more.

Thank you for being part of this vital work! Your ongoing support will help us to transform the lives of many disabled children in Africa.
