66% of Persons living with disabilities live in rural areas where age (0-35) takes 77.9% of the populace. This is a significant number bearing in mind the index number of poverty level is high in the rural area. These persons need an enabling environment that informs supports and cultivates them to be productive in our society.
VICOCAP through its disability inclusion program works with persons with disabilities of all ages in two different projects with an objective of advocating for disability inclusion in all sectors. “Afya ni mali means health is wealth” is a project focused to improve the overall health by providing physiotherapy services and referrals when need be. The other project Wezesha project focuses to improve the living standards of persons with disabilities through participating in income generating activities by changing the mindset from dependency to self-reliance. This aligns with SDG 5 and 10.
