The Cycle of Poverty and Disability
Disability & Poverty are Linked in a Vicious Cycle
If you have a disability, there is a higher probability that you will live in poverty and if you live in poverty, you may have, or at some point in your life, have a disability. This is one of the primary reasons we focus our work on developing countries.
The cycle may be explained because of a:
Lack of Access:
to clean water, proper sanitation,
healthcare. Increased conflict &
violence. Deficits in human rights.
Lack of Opportunity:
to education, employment,
advocacy. Often face vulnerability,
discrimination, & isolation.
