CAPACITY BUILDING PROJECT

BACKGROUND

People with disabilities (PWDS) have been estimated to make up about 16% of the population of Uganda according to the 2002 Population census. PWDS have been found to be one of the poorest in the country due to lack of access to opportunities such as employment, education, housing and health (http://www.ilo.org/.../wcms_115099.pdf). The government has presented laws to support the rights of PWDS in Uganda however the adoption of these policies has been slow (http://ugandaradionetwork.com/a/story.php?s=55864).
