INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES (IDPWD) PROJECT
We observe the annual International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPWD) on 3rd December 2021.
The focus is on celebrating persons with disabilities who through their talents and skills are maximizing their opportunities and inspiring others to do so. We support them with equipment and hold workshops that help them to scale or start their businesses.
In total, we have empowered 43 small businesses owned by persons with disabilities with varying types of equipment to help them scale up.
EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT PROJECT (ESP)
Students with disabilities especially those from underserved/disadvantaged families like their peers without disabilities want a higher education so that they can have a better quality of life. However, most of them cannot afford basic writing materials, this is even more daunting for blind students who must use assistive devices like Braille Slates, Typewriters, Laptops, tape recorders to participate in class effectively.
We support students with disabilities by providing them with educational and assistive devices to enable them focus on their education.
Harnessing Opportunities Promoting Equality (HOPE) Projects
We promote disability inclusion that seeks to change societal stereotypes and structures affecting our beneficiaries, especially those with disabilities through our Harnessing Opportunities Promoting Equality (HOPE) Advocacy Projects.
