Membership Empowerment Project

This was a three-year project (2011-2013) with a goal of enabling persons with physical disabilities enjoy equal rights in all aspects of life and are included equally into development programs and projects. The project resulted into increased advocacy capacity of the staff, board and members in the areas of accessibility and access of people with disability to poverty alleviation programs. It also resulted into strengthening of UNAPD management systems and structures as well as increased ownership of the organisation by the members. The project also actively promoted disability sports through piloting sports activities in Mubende district where five teams of sitting volleyball were setup. It was implemented in 12 districts namely Arua, Oyam, Kitgum, Kaberamaido, Busia,Pallissa, Mubende, Kiboga, Kayunga, Mbarara, Bushenyi and Kisoro.
