The project focuses on promoting measures and reforms that can ensure recognition, respect, equality and justice for people with disabilities in Solomon Islands.

This project seeks to achieve the following impact:

  • More women with disabilities are able to access counselling, legal, case management, shelter and psychological first aid services.

 

  • People with disabilities understand how climate change in the Solomon Islands may affect them, and are empowered to act and adapt.

 

  • People with disabilities are empowered to increase their household income through employment or entrepreneurial opportunities.
