A total of 107 students with disabilities have received certificates and diplomas in motor vehicle mechanics, tailoring, catering and nursery teaching at Nakawa Disabled Vocational Training Institute.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony recently, Jacob Bona, the institute director, appealed to the public to stop discriminating against people with disabilities, saying they can also contribute to the development of the country.

“We can do what others do. Disability is not inability,” Bona said.

The director of studies, Alex Omony, said the Government’s failure to fund vocational institutions had affected the quality of higher education in Uganda.

“Vocational institutes are not taken seriously, yet graduates need them for practical skills,” Omony said.
