Before Covid-19 occured others were volunteering at RATA, advocating in different areas of the country so that persons with disabilities in Rwanda access ICTs (Assistive technologies).

Because of that pandemic, our organization since March 2020 has done few activities as most of our activities were done while bringing together many people.

For the moment, RATA  through its website is  providing basic information and resources needed by persons with disabilities and their caretakers regarding Assistive technology.
