2.0 About IDIWA
Integrated Disabled Women Activities is a voluntary, not for profit non-governmental organization established in 2000 purposely to empower Women and Girls with Disabilities, and other vulnerable groups to maximize their potential and improve their standard of living through
Economic Empowerment and Livelihoods, Human Rights and Good Governance, Community Based Rehabilitation, Health and Reproductive Rights, and Education. IDIWA visualizes an inclusive society in which human rights; citizenship and potential of Women, People with
Disabilities, and other vulnerable groups are respected.
IDIWA is focused on empowerment of Women and Girls with Disabilities (WGDs) by advocating for improved access to services, resources (ownership and control), participation in democratic and governance processes, economic opportunities and respect for their human and
health rights. This is done through training, advocacy, lobbying, and networking and by involving community members because ideas are generated from them. Advocating for the realization of human rights of persons with disabilities is an essential part of the work IDIWA
does and it is also part of a wider component of our advocacy work to accelerate access to disability friendly SRH services by Women and Girls with Disabilities.
