Empowerment Center for Women with disabilities



Persons with disability are vulnerable segment of society. They need attention and due care to build up their career. NDF Nawabshah is running a Skill Development Centre to make them self sufficient. We need to sustain our centre to provide better services to 50 women in future. In our centre there are four disciplines in which we are providing free training to persons with disability. Women with disabilities are being empowered in Tailoring and embroidery, computer courses and English language.

What is the issue, problem, or 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.

How will this project solve this problem?

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.
