UMURAZA commented on Reaching out hard to reach young people with disabilities

Yes go AGHR, you are capable and competent to move your prototype to the next level. I like the idea of the using peer education and find the leadership training among the other activities very innovative. Building the partnership with the women and girls with disabilities and single organisations of persons with disabilities in reaching unreachable and services provision to hard to reach unique. I wish all the best to the next level.

Dear Rob, you are most welcome. Of Course UNABU works with Women/girls with disabilities of UNABU. Hence we have a got a number of them who use Prosthetic knee joint though they are not many because the assistive devices are expensive in Rwanda and hardy covered by the universal health insurance. On the other hand we are also member of the umbrella organisation of Persons with disabilities in Rwanda, allowing us to stay in contact with other Disabled organisations of Rwanda hence we can link with you with the Umbrella organisation as well as other individuals with disabiltiies who might be of your interest. Being member of the Amplify impact may open for more partnership in the future. We keep in touch. Mathilde Umuraza
