Many disabled persons especially women in Kinshasa are relying on beggary to survive! So CALFE ( www.calfe.org) help them get trained in tailoring handcrafts to start their own business and get financially independent. Then CALFE provided them 10 sewing machines and other tailoring supplies to start Income Generating Activities. They'd now be working and help themselves but they are lacking a place for this. Then this project will also help more disabled persons to learn tailoring.
The situation of people living with disabilities at the Democratic Republic of the Congo is miserable: the accessibility to education, at profession and their integration in the community is still the real problem which require urgent solution in order to support this category of neglected population. In addition to this is the discrimination, disregard, rejection, poverty, and unemployment rate of this category of the population. By lack of better option, this population is in majority begging
