Empowering Mothers of the Disabled for Partnership

by Samadhan


Gender bias is more pronounced in poverty areas. Training women and mothers of disabled children to generate incomes and take on responsibilities in our work empowers them, and gives us a core group.

Beneficiaries are women, particularly mothers of the disabled, who are living in poverty and denied opportunities for a better quality of life. They remain financially dependent, have no concept of their rights, and most accept abuse and their role as sole caretakers of the disabled member of the family. But these women have potential: innate child-rearing skills. If provided with opportunities for development, they can improve their own life and that of their families.


Education of disabled women to allow them to read, write, and learn vocational skills for income generation.

Long-Term Impact

Empowering women and particularly mothers of the disabled to become partners in our work will provide opportunities for financial independence. The women also gain status as valued members of our organization, thus changing community perceptions.
