    • Project

      This project allows LDPA to bring together its experience in the areas of livelihood, disability rights promotion, community mobilisation and advocacy in a single geographic area for the first time. The project builds on previous experiences in the areas of livelihood support and disability rights promotion, but includes newly designed activities aimed to inform persons with disabilities about their rights to access local services, strategies to support improved accessibility of local services and the roles and responsibilities of local authorities and service providers in their communities.

      The project supports awareness and training not only for persons with disabilities, but also for local authorities and service providers and bring all of these key target groups together to design and implement local action plans to remove barriers that limit access to services for persons with disabilities.
