The Ubuntu Life mission is ‘Connect to Empower.’​ When we first came to Maai Mahiu, Kenya, we found a community of children with special needs and their mothers being mistreated and secluded. The stigma and lack of understanding surrounding special needs in Kenya means extremely limited access to essential services such as education, affordable healthcare, physical rehabilitation, and vocational training.
