    • Project

      Creating Systems on Assistive Devices/Wheelchair Provision in Indonesia project responds to the pressing issue of empowering people with disabilities (PWDs) and Organisations through creating and sharing of local knowledge that helps push for disability-inclusive development. People with physical disabilities (mobile disability) in Indonesia have very limited access to supporting devices such as wheelchairs that can improve their quality of living. It makes them unable to leave the house, limits their independency and possibilities to go to school, find a job, and participate in community activities. At the same time, there are still prejudices around disability which makes it hard for people to reach out for help. Apart from this, not having access to the right supporting equipment can have great influences on their health. More specificly, the project focuses on:

      • Assisting local Disability Persons Organisations (DPOs) in realising their own wheelchair shop. As stated, more wheelchair shops are necessary in other regions in Indonesia. Local DPOs are willing to take on this task. Through proper training, they build their own system of wheelchair provision and employ local DPOs (with PWDs members themselves) and healthcare professionals.
      •  Providing access to appropriate mobility devices. Many people in Indonesia would be helped immensely if they would have access to appropriate support devices. Through this project, the DPOs empower more PWDs in their region, which results to their mobility and participation.
      • Empowering DPOs, parents associations, and local healthcare professionals. The project empowers DPOs and parents associations that devote themselves to better social services for children and adults with disabilities. This project serves as a good practice for the DPOs, parents associations, local physical and occupational therapists through learning workshops on disability-related nutritional and physical management.
      • Increasing awareness of disability-inclusive development. This is through raising awareness on disability-inclusive development that is done through the various activities within this project.
      • Sharing with the government good practices on wheelchair provision that involve DPOs. This increases government involvement and encourages them to support DPOs in future.

      Through participatory training and work plan development, three wheelchair shops are being piloted. In the long run, this will result in a new local system of care and employment.
