In Malawi, Habitat for Humanity is partnering with CBM Canada and working towards the goal of improving the physical living conditions and quality of life for 60 families in the Salima District. This will enable Habitat for Humanity to further its efforts in addressing the housing needs of these vulnerable families by providing fully subsidized homes equipped with ventilated washrooms. The project will also undertake training on the care and support of people with disabilities, encouraging the transfer of knowledge to strengthen their families, improve their livelihoods and encourage an inclusive, holistic community.
Empowering Families of People with Disabilities will significantly improve the physical living conditions of the affected families. This will not only reduce their vulnerability to intrusion and diseases but will also improve their hygiene and health while increasing their economic and social participation. This project also encourages learning and knowledge transfer by training not only partner family members but also community leaders, child protection workers, community based organization representatives and other influential community members. This training will raise awareness for things like inheritance rights and protect vulnerable families from property grabbing.
Vote Empowering Families of People with Disabilities to support vulnerable families in Malawi.
