ADD International Announces Closure of GBV Project

People living with disabilities have urged human resource managers to implement measures that support their employment prospects. Ms. Sylvia Biira, the secretary of KADIWOD, stressed that providing individuals with special needs a modified work schedule would enable them to meet their employers’ expectations more effectively.

To enhance the productivity of persons with disabilities (PWDs), Sylvia encouraged employers to stop stigmatizing them by denying them opportunities based on their diverse disabilities.

During the closure of a breakfast meeting focused on Gender-Based Violence (GBV) held at the mayor’s board room in Kasese Municipality, Ms. Sylvia made these remarks. The meeting also aimed to announce the conclusion of a two-year GBV program funded by ADD International in Uganda. Participants shared experiences and established a sustainability plan for future initiatives.

Ms. Scovia Mwerya, the program team leader at ADD International, praised Kasese district for its exemplary coordination and dissemination of information regarding GBV among people with disabilities.

Ruth Labongo, the Community Development Officer (CDO) for Maliba Sub-County, expressed optimism that including PWDs in sub-county quarterly work plans and establishing disability groups marks a significant achievement for the project.

In response to the concerns raised, Mr. Rabson Mupango, the Deputy Mayor of Kasese Municipality, pledged government support for persons living with disabilities.
