THE WHEEL CHAIR

Disabled young people all over the world face unfair inequality of opportunities, but in parts of Africa conditions can be unimaginably hard. We believe together, we have an obligation to help if we can. The I.T IN THE WHEEL CHAIR (I.T.I.W.C) started 2014 in Liberia where a lot was done after gaining much experience by working in high population of disability. Multi-Tech coordinated activities of projects engaged by USAID,……….and other West African affiliates who helped in confronting the advent of hopelessness and degenerated confidence in the youth of Liberia after the brutal civil wars. The gain of practical know-how of this engagement has made the replication possible in Ghana amidst extreme difficulty in harnessing start-up resources.

The vast majority of Africans with disabilities is excluded from schools and so lack economic opportunities. Obviously, a fraction of 1 percent of PLDs is difficult to be found in the public employment sectors throughout the continent. This explains the timidity and low esteem of even those who discovered their talents and abilities and are willing to exploit it. The lukewarm attitude of the governments to strategize their respective employment sector in-takes to fully embrace PLDs is a manifestation of some sort of guarantee of lifestyle of these PLDs as the poorest of the poor among us. School enrollment for the disabled is estimated at no more than 5-10 percent and as many as 70-80 percent of working age people with disabilities remain unemployed. The social stigma associated with disability results in marginalization and isolation, often leading to begging for alms as the sole means of their survival.

Disabled young people all over the world face unfair inequality of opportunities but in parts of Africa conditions can be unimaginably hard. We believe together, we have an obligation to help if we can.

People living with disabilities have a wealth of experience and knowledge. Sharing that wealth can help others advocate for themselves. That is the foundation for our (I.T.I.W.C) with disabilities sharing their experience. Seeing how their peers have done it, others with disabilities become better informed about their ability to become successful and useful to their communities. They learn to exercise their rights to get what they need. They learn how to protect themselves from abuse and neglect. They study Information technology and Ultimately; they become their own best advocates.
