Description Of Our Work

Disability and Inclusive Labour Programmes

TAD is involved in supporting youths with disabilities to implement small income generation projects such as gardening, upholstery among others. It is planning to come up with new Income Generating Projects of any kind, which are aimed to enhance the lives of young persons with disabilities in the society as a strategy to enable them to meet their special needs and rehabilitation services like buying new artificial limbs, wheelchairs, etc. as currently these youths do not afford to access them. The Idea came after witnessing high numbers of youths with disabilities situated in the Harare CBD who have turned into street leo.

Awareness raisings , advocacy and campaigns initiatives

TAD is also involved in carrying out disability awareness raising activities that are aimed at promoting the inclusion of youths with disabilities in all spheres of development. We are driven by the need to have equal access to disability inclusive transport systems, justice, and health among others. The main objective of projects like this is to empower youths with disabilities using various human rights instruments and policies like the Gender policy, National Youth Policy, United Nation Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities to build their self-esteem so that they can have the confidence to participate well in social and economic activities that can promote their financial independence.
