Challenge

Women with disabilities are facing double discrimination for being women & disabled. Women with disabilities especially in rural areas are limited within four walls of rooms by parents to hide themselves from society. Women with disabilities are not offered education, health and even right of marriage. This problem needs redress. NDF has sensitized community to offer equal opportunity to WWDs at NDF center, to make them self sufficient, the target of 50 women to stand them own feet.

Solution

NDF has established empowerment Center in Nawabshah with funding of Abilis Foundation Finland. The center offers services in Tailoring, Embroidery, I.T & English Language. The center has 50 women getting training free of cost. The center needs funds to ahead, to sustain the project. From Abilis Funding 259 women with disabilities were empowered, now they are very happy at their home working decent work to earn their livelihood at their doorstep.

Long-Term Impact

Nawabshah Disability Forum has 500 registered members in Nawabshah. We will provide training opportunity to these members of different localities.

Women with disabilities will be given due respect of their professional ability in this way they may live in dignified manner, their economic condition will improve they will be contributor in Society. Other rights will be cared.
