Scholarships for Persons with Special Needs (PSNs) And Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs)

Children with learning disabilities are often neglected and looked down upon by the society. They often receive negative feedback from schools and hence refuse to develop positive cognitions to the outside world. It is therefore not easy for children with any kind of disability, to keep at pace with the learning process of children, who do not have special needs. This is very wrong. As humans, it is their basic right to an equal opportunity of receiving education. They have the right to live a fulfilling life, exploring its fullest potential.

WIU with support from UNHCR offers scholarships to PSNs and OVCs, to access Secondary Education in the settlements and specialized Primary Education in special needs schools outside the settlements.

Currently over 1732 OVCs and 381 PSNs are supported.
