The Special Mothers Project’s vision is to create awareness about cerebral palsy and point families with children who have cerebral palsy to available services in Ghana.
The project also seeks to empower the mothers with basic handling and management of a child with cerebral palsy.
his is done through training workshops for parents/mothers with the basic physiotherapy skills and encourage parents to share vital information.
The workshops also serve as a skill learning platform for parents and a networking opportunity to meet other mothers/families with children with cerebral palsy.
The project also hopes to create awareness among teachers, health professionals, community based rehabilitation workers and policy makers by engaging them in workshops.
The Special Mothers Project will work closely with the Department of Social Welfare and the Special Education Unit of the Ghana Education Service as well as other identifiable stakeholders.
