Our projects are all very different but have the same goal in mind: creating independence, equality and opportunity for disabled people living in poverty.
Working with local groups of disability activists (also called Disabled People’s Organisations or DPOs) ensures that our work is a true reflection of the real needs of disabled people. Read more about how we work in partnership to strengthen the voice of disability activists.
Some of our projects are ongoing. They involve work that we do worldwide to persuade governments, international development organisations and the private sector to include the needs of disabled people in their policies and services.
In Uganda, as well as in the other countries we work with, we carry out ongoing work:
Current projects are taking place now, but have a fixed end date. They involve working directly with local disabled people's organisations (DPOs) to strengthen their organisations and promote the rights of disabled people in their communities.
