The project uses a systemic action learning approach to impact the lives of at least 7,000 persons with disabilities. This approach will enable them to become fully engaged in the economic activities of selected agricultural and pastoral value chains, increasing their incomes by 30%, thus tackling poverty and building on the commitments of SDGs and the CRPD. The project will also raise awareness on the potential, aspirations and needs of persons with disabilities by their communities and other stakeholders such as civil society organisations, governments and private actors.
persons with disabilities will be helped
We will deliver this by:
The project will work in Mozambique, Burkina Faso, Malawi and India where collaboration is sought with the IFAD projects identified in the Terms of References of the call for proposals. Through learning exchanges, dissemination of knowledge and a helpdesk, more IFAD projects can be engaged.
In selecting the consortium with Light for the World International, ILO and Procasur, IFAD will be able to tap into valuable global and country-specific expertise on disability inclusion and disability related networks, international expertise and networks on decent and meaningful jobs, as well as a thoroughly tested and scaled up learning ecosystem.
The project will leave a legacy through increased capacity, innovative approaches and customized tools that can be implemented and used in other IFAD supported programmes and projects to support accelerated inclusion of especially women and youth with disabilities.
