  • Disability and MDG 1 activities on IDPWD)

  • Eradicate Hunger and Poverty

  • Disability and poverty are mutually reinforcing

  • Evidence shows that disabled people are disproportionate among the very poor.

  • 82% live below the poverty line

  • As many as 50% of disabilities are preventable and directly linked to poverty

  • Many people with disabilities are denied education or jobs

  • Disorders may require chronic health care which drain the scarce household resources.

  • Achieve Primary Universal Education

  • Very often children with disabilities are not recognized, get frustrated with school and drop out.

  • The majority of children who repeat classes or drop out of school have emotional or intellectual disabilities.

  • This in turn makes it impossible to achieve the goal of

  • Universal Primary Education unless the health aspects are taken into account.

  • 2 -10% of children with disabilities in developing countries receive an education.

  • Disability and MDG 3 activities on IDPWD)

  • Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women

We are residing in vijayanagaram basthi in Bhimavaram Municipality. I have completed my ITI with many difficulties . Our family burden is borne by my brother. I was very much upset for not having able to get proper job for my studies as well as inability to do hard work on account of my disability. At this juncture UPADHI came my way as a ray of hope and I learnt many things in UPADHI training . Under Rajiv Yuva shakthi scheme I started a shop by taking a loan of 50000/- of which Rs 7500/- is subsidy. Now I am in a position to give employment to others which further enhanced my confidence. Thus Municipality and UPADHI programme has given meenough pride by eliminating all my fears.
