Challenge

15 per cent of the world's population is estimated to live with a disability according to the World Health Organization. Available data indicate that persons with disabilities are at higher risk of poverty than their counterparts without disabilities in both developed and developing countries. Measures to promote decent work and employment, reduce poverty and enhance income security for persons with disabilities are largely overlooked, given the numerous crises affecting the region.

Solution

Kadiwaku Family Foundation will implement a program enabling persons with disabilities to participate in entrepreneurship training and to receive financial support in order to develop a sense of autonomy, since entrepreneurship can help persons with disabilities participate in the job market and be socially and economically active, as far as possible, depending on their situation. The program includes an advocacy component as well and provides education, social support for psychosocial welfare.

Long-Term Impact

Kadiwaku Family Foundation (KFF) will provide digital and business skills to 650 persons with disabilities allowing them to set up small business and create accessible services and business opportunities for persons with disabilities in order to enhance their quality of life and living standards in Democratic Republic of the Congo.
