Présentation
The project supports the community based rehabilitation work of the Thuso Rehabilitation Center in the northern communities of Botswana. The project brings the rehabilitation services close to the people with disabilities (PWD’s) in their own living environment. The rehabilitation team reaches out to and registers new PWD’s, follows up the progress of rehabilitation in homes, as well as educates and helps village communities in supporting and integrating the PWD’s in the community activities.Northern Botswana is a sparsely populated semi-dry savanna area where the distances between villages are long. The PWD’s do not have access to rehabilitation services. In addition, the lack of knowledge and attitudes of villagers towards disability further delay the PWD’s from seeking rehabilitation and prevents them from becoming full members of the society. The project brings rehabilitation treatments to the PWD’s and promotes their independent living at home and in the community.As a result of the project the health situation of PWD’ has improved and the disability related skills and knowledge increased.The beneficiaries of the project are the people with disabilities of Ngami, Okavango, Chobe, Ghanzi and Charles Hill areas.The project is implemented by the Thuso Rehabilitation Center, which has a long experience in community based rehabilitation work in Botswana.
