Summary

The low cost and availability of APT devices for Palestinian children with disability living in the camps is essentially relevant. To boost obtaining custom made devices for those children, the organization is planning to train parents and volunteers to make APT devices using recycled paper. Cardboard, paper and flour are available locally and very cheap. APT with its cheap and available materials and its versatility for designing unique and individualized devices, is ideal for the program

Challenge

The SCDP is in the south of Lebanon working in a Palestinian 'camp'. The economic situation in the camp is related to the whole situation in Lebanon. There is unemployment and inflation. Extra costs are being born by citizens because of the past frequent wars affecting their economy badly. Palestinians have decreased services for health and education which were covered by UNRWA and other organizations. The Lebanese state has decreed that Palestinians should not be working in 78 jobs in Lebanon.

Solution

1. The project will start with building the capacity of parents of children with disabilities, volunteers and other acting disability NGOs staff through training on Appropriate Paper base Technology APT: (25 Trainees). 2. The program will establish a basic APT workshop at one of its premises to be used by trainees supervised by the Occupational and physiotherapists. 3. Make up to 50 devices prescribed by specialists for children with disabilities using kinds of recycled paper per year.

Long-Term Impact

Trainees (25) will acquire the APT making skill which will help them use those skills to make not only equipments (up to 50 pieces per year) for their children but also for other children and make pieces of furniture and toys for their homes. As a result, the burdens regarding affording such equiments will be at its lower levels.
