Support Youth Living with Disabilities
Please note that this project is currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Meetings and workshops will resume as soon as it is safe for all participants to do so.
In rural and poor Ethiopia, there is little to no institutional support for people living with disabilities, making even the most basic tasks extraordinarily difficult. In this program, youth with disabilities gather together twice a month to talk about their challenges and support one another. They learn entrepreneurial and business development skills so that they can be self-sufficient adults.
Three young people in the program have succeeded in opening their own small businesses.
Support a young person living with disabilities for one year with a gift of $250.
