Challenge

We have identified the need of this project after realizing the abject poverty in refugee community and an increase in the number of the people with disabilities begging on the streets of Johannesburg and surrounding areas, most of them are refugees and asylum seekers; There is also need of sharing skills among disabled people in a bid to regain self-esteem, independence and a successful socioeconomic integration.

Solution

This project, once implemented, will be a source of survival for disabled refugees and their families. They will free the streets, will get employed and be able to serve the community and guarantee their own integration into the South African social and economic life.

Long-Term Impact

This project guarantees the integration of the disabled refugee community into the South African socioeconomic life. It also creates employment to others refugees, asylum seekers, women and others disadvantaged members of the South African communities, especially those living with disabilities willing to learn and join.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
