Disabled refugees are one of the most socially excluded and neglected human group in South Africa. They daily face terrible challenges to survive and integrate themselves by lack of resources. This project uses the skills of disabled people through running a Poultry project.
The implementation of this project will assist disabled people to have a generating income activity that sustain their lives by selling eggs to Mall, Spazza Shops and the surrounding communities.
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.
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.
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.
This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
