Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
Providing bicycles and training to support income-generation activities
Afghan Amputee Bicyclists for Rehabilitation and Recreation (AABRAR), based in Kabul, is an NGO that runs a monthly bicycle training programme for persons with disabilities. Participants learn to ride and repair a bicycle in addition to receiving vocational, health, and literacy training. Following training, participants receive a bicycle. They can then work in bicycle repair, use the bicycle to offer mobile services, or use it as transport. From 2001 and 2020, AABRAR has trained 7,125 persons.
“I cannot express my happiness. As a result of the training I work and generate income for my family.”
