Empowering People with Disabilities (Sri Lanka)

Sri Lankan Woman with Disasbility Project UnitingWorld

People with disabilities are some of the most vulnerable people in Sri Lanka. They are often excluded from society, don’t have a lot of access to services and find it difficult to get employment.

We support Deaf Link to provide occupational training to women with disabilities and provide access to education for children with disabilities. This enables people with disabilities, through work and study, to be accepted, equal and valued members of society.

Activities occur primarily in the North and Eastern Provinces of Sri Lanka.

 

This project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, we’re making a huge difference together; lifting families out of poverty and helping people improve their lives.
