September is Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) awareness month.

Songambele raising awareness about disability caused by spinal cord injury

Key facts

  • Every year, around the world, between 250 000 and 500 000 people suffer a spinal cord injury (SCI).
  • The majority of spinal cord injuries are due to preventable causes such as road traffic crashes, falls or violence.
  • People with a spinal cord injury are two to five times more likely to die prematurely than people without a spinal cord injury, with worse survival rates in low- and middle-income countries.
  • Spinal cord injury is associated with lower rates of school enrollment and economic participation, and it carries substantial individual and societal costs.

Inclusive Entrepreneurs Training

We had a great inclusive entrepreneurs training of which our participants agreed that after this training their lives will never be the same because they will do their business in a more professional way in order to make more profits.

Start where you are, use what you have, and do whatever you can!

Inclusion matters!

Songambele is organizing public events to raise awareness, acceptance and understanding for people with disabilities within our society. We are doing this from primary schools to Universities. By the very nature of the education environment there will always be students or family members that have disabilities - many of whom may well have hidden disabilities.

We had a very successful training at Umbwe Boys High school.

Through sports we connect together and invite people with disabilities who don’t know each other to be active together. They participate into different games of their choice and get to refresh their mind, build confident and their self-esteem and just to have a great time together.
