Challenge

Meeting the needs commonly falls to the children's primary caregivers, which can be parents, other family members or anyone with caring responsibilities for a child with a developmental disability, a large proportion of whom will be women. In LMICs, medical, educational, and social services for children with disabilities and their families may be lacking or affected by limited healthcare budgets and loss of productivity. As a result, the need to involve, support, and empower families is central

Solution

The Project targets particularly the caregivers of children with cerebral palsy in urban and rural environments. Objective 1: Mapp and select 300 caregivers of children with cerebral palsy. Train 300 CP caregivers in business skills and financial literacy. Objective 2: 10 VSLA group formation. Training of VSLA groups in VSLA principles and methodology Objective 3: Refer cases identified and link them to care

Long-Term Impact

This project will train 300 caretakers allowing them to rise out of poverty, which will provide for their families' health and well-being. This project will economically strengthen the livelihoods of caregivers of children with cerebral palsy through support provided in starting businesses, accessing credit, and belonging to social networks for socio-economic inclusion and transformation by 2025.
