Women living with disabilities
We are the mothers with disability from the Democratic Republic of Congo in the South of Kivu / Bukavu / Lycée Wima.
Our objective is to fight against street begging and strive for self reliance for disabled women. We work using our hands for instance we work as dressmakers, handcraft, embroidery, making hand bags of different designs.
We are also sharing this knowledge and teaching other mothers and girls so that we can reach a level of self reliance. As we speak, we are only based in Bukavu but we are looking into possible ways of operating in remote rural areas. We would like disabled women living in remote rural areas to start this kind of work because it will make them feel like they are as human as any other women and that they are useful to their community plus this work will empower them financially.
We are advocating for the rights of disabled women and for this work to keep going on because we believe that it will help and change the whole world.
