Activities of Organisations of Persons with Disabilities
Working together increases the knowledge and skills of persons with disabilities and builds faith in their own abilities.
At the heart of our work is respect for and promotion of human rights.
Women and Girls
The projects we fund promote equal opportunities for women and girls with disabilities to participate in society.
Livelihoods and Environment
Many persons with disabilities derive their livelihoods from agriculture, animal husbandry and plantations. Caring for the environment is taken into account in project activities.
