HEDCHE Wins PEPFAR Hero award

In the Nebbi District of Western Uganda, the dropout rate for deaf or hearing impaired school-aged children was 100%. Additionally, multiple rapes and assaults on deaf children had been reported. When Denis Paul Wargram learned of these issues, he made it his mission to help these children. In 2013, Denis became a founding member of Help Disabled Children Excel, a community-based organization with the mission to be an advocate for children with disabilities.  Denis has created multiple projects to protect and empower these children, including helping children gain financial independence through beekeeping.
