Cerebral Palsy Africa is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation working in numerous countries throughout Africa to improve the lives of children with cerebral palsy.
CPA works with all who strive to enable children with cerebral palsy to reach their potential. The aim is to allow children with cerebral palsy to be integrated into their communities and have access to education. We do this through raising awareness of the benefits of therapy and through conducting training programmes for physiotherapists or occupational therapists, community workers, teachers and parents to give them the knowledge and skills to be able to help the children function better in their everyday lives.
