DISABILITY EMPOWERMENT CONCERNS
Copyright © 2016 DEC Trust. All rights reserved.
Each DEC beneficiary NGO offers a range of services in line with the needs of their target primary beneficiaries. Services rendered extend to persons with visible and invisible disabilities at home, in schools as well as in various institutions of learning and at work including those residing in various care facilities across the country.
Persons with disabilities live with, work with and interact with non-disabled people who, in many instances, do not know or understand how to relate with or interact with them (depending on the type, visibility or non-visibility and the (perceived) severity of the disability). These include family members and relatives as well as peers and colleagues in schools and/or at work, educators, supervisors and/or managers. That in itself presents additional opportunities for extension of the services offered by each beneficiary NGO to facilitate the empowerment of all persons (even those without disabilities) through advocacy, information access and support services aimed at ensuring reasonable accommodation and effective mainstreaming of persons with disabilities into society, at work and in various institutions of learning.
