Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
Providing income-generating activities to refugees with disabilities
World Vision is an international development organization based in the United States. In 2017 it added inclusive employment activities into its existing work on inclusive water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) interventions for refugees with disabilities. Working in Uganda’s Omugo and Palorinya refugee settlement areas, it offers seeds, tools, and training to support income-generating activities such as baking and soap making. From 2017 to 2020 it has supported 3,215 persons with disabilities.
“My life has never been the same again after the training. It helped me discover my potential.”
