Challenge

The people of Upper East Region specifically Bongo District have the belief that person born been disable is an evil child and therefore are not making effort to support these disable persons in the communities. These children sometimes are left to stay in the rooms. persons with disability will be giving an equipment such us wheel chairs, clutches, etc which will help them move out and feel they are part of the world.

Solution

The ability project will help integrate persons with disability by using card boards and news papers to make equipment for persons with disabilities which will help them move from one place to another, and those who want to go to school but do not have the means can also go, This will help them actualize their dreams and aspirations that will enable them to also contribute to the development of their communities and the world at large.
