Kyaninga Mobility. Sustainable movement.

Working with Kyaninga Child Development Centre (KCDC) to improve the lives of those with a disability in Uganda and East Africa.


Produce wheelchairs, mobility equipment and prosthetics for current KCDC clients.


Create an additional revenue source to KCDC by supplying mobility equipment for the East African market.

Provide a source of employment for an underdeveloped market and employ people with disabilities.

Featured Projects

With continued testing, Kyaninga Mobility aims to create a wheelchair that is more than suitable for the East African terrain it was designed for.

Who We Are

Of the people who require a wheelchair in Uganda only 0.5% will have one. 

Currently, Kyaninga Child Development Center (KCDC) provides monthly therapeutic care for over 700 children with a wide range of physical, intellectual and communication disabilities via an innovative community-based rehabilitation programme.
Many of the children seen by KCDC require additional equipment to support therapy outcomes (wheelchairs, standing apparatuses, etc.) For these unique needs, KCDC lends out equipment to families on an as-needed and availability basis. KCDC currently has a growing list of 300 children in urgent need of a wheelchair, and there is a further large unmet need in Uganda, an estimated 820,0001 children aged 5 – 14. In the East Africa Community, this unmet need expands to an estimated 2.2 million children.The local terrain requires a wheelchair that can endure a rural environment and be modified to fit the unique needs of the wheelchair user, as improperly designed and ill-fitted wheelchairs can be life-threatening to the user.
Kyaninga Mobility works to design, manufacture and develop a range of mobility devices, initially for KCDC patients but eventually for the wider East African population. 


Kyaninga Mobility is a not-for-profit initiative set up by the Kyaninga Child Development Centre (KCDC) to manufacture and supply locally produced and adapted wheelchairs, and other mobility equipment, to KCDC and the wider Ugandan and East African markets.


Using bamboo and local materials, our products are aimed to be as sustainable as possible. Materials which are widely available mean communities and individuals car repair and replace damages or lost parts of equipment.


With the aim of employing individuals with a range of disabilities, Kyaninga Mobility can become a leading employer and help people living with disabilities in Uganda lead positive and fulfilling lives.

Managing Director

Steve oversees the running of the organization. KCDC and Kyaninga Mobility is deeply personal for Steve as the organization was founded because of the experiences and difficulties that Steve and his wife Asha faced with their own son, who has epilepsy and development delay. They initially advertised for a physiotherapist to come out to Uganda for 6 months to provide intensive therapy for their son, but after realising how many other families were facing similar and even greater challenges, Steve, Asha and Fiona felt compelled to act and established KCDC, and then Kyaninga Mobility.
