Persons with disabilities standing up for their rights

Making our successes sustainable

After ten years of involvement in Skardu in the Gilgit Baltistan Province, our local partner organisation is handing over the Community Based Rehabilitation and inclusion work to the local Disabled People’s Organisation. This is a huge success for sustainable development in this region. To date we have reached 68,702 persons in total and 163 children accessed school education in our projects in Pakistan.
