Livelihood Training for Disabled People
While the rights of disabled people are protected under the Sri Lankan constitution, in practice these rights are often not upheld. This project, in partnership with CENWOR—the Centre for Women’s Research, will offer vocational training to about 60 disabled people in the Anuradhapura district. The project will also seek to improve the quality of life of those who are totally dependent on others by training their caregivers. One of the goals of the project is to change the way people with disabilities are viewed in their families and the wider community, increasing public awareness of their contributions. New project.
