WHAT WE DO
World Embrace is glad to be part of 10th anniversary commemoration of Gulu Wheelchair Basketball and pledged to include disability sports and accessibility issues in his Champions Recreation Centre set to be constructed at Kaunda ground. He urged people to work together with love in order to accomplish great feat notwithstanding religion, colour, disability or any other conflicting issues I live.
Mr Reynold Mainse
Director - World Embrace
By faith we constructed a Basketball Court but today wheelchair basketball can now implement adaptive sports for PWDs which was not a dream in Uganda 10 years ago. This is a huge pride for the disability movement in Uganda which we all have to embrace. We encourage the organization to continue to do massive grassroots recruitment so that many children with disabilities have the opportunity to recreate and develop their athleticism
Honourable Ongom Simon Okwigi

Gulu Wheelchair Basketball Club has won several trophies on behalf of the district including two last year when we hosted the National Disability gala in Gulu district. These athletes with disabilities participating in sports is a strong advocacy voice of PWDs in the country.
Honourable Lakwonyero Denis Ocen
I was excited to witness persons with disabilities play so skillfully on the wheelchairs which was a joy to watch. I am glad that the financial support the Gulu Municipal council gave to last year’s National disability gala hosted in Gulu did not go to waste seeing such amazing talents.
His worship the Mayor of Gulu Municipal Council has pledged to contribute support towards the team trip the 5th Edition of the National Disability Gala September 2018 in Mbarara, and I will ensure this happens when the time comes
