The National Union of Disabled Persons of Uganda (NUDIPU) is an indigenous umbrella Non Governmental organization of Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) that brings together all disability categories including sensory, physically and mentally impaired people. NUDIPU was formed in 1987 when the then existing associations of PWDs came together to break the tradition that tended to treat them as objects of charity and medical care. Before NUDIPU was formed, the voice of PWDs was scattered, a scenario that left the disability issues isolated from the society's main development priorities. NUDIPU derives its mandate from the membership of district based disability associations and National Disabled Peoples
