Disability Support International (DSI) – Cambodia Disability Training

Date grant awarded: July 22, 2019

Throughout Cambodia and many developing countries, people with disabilities often lack access to services, opportunities, and inclusion. Thus, we ask ourselves, how can equal human rights be promoted and achieved if disabilities are not understood? U.S.-trained disability professionals Mick and Jennie Wendland, along with Elizabeth Schrader, started Disability Support International (DSI) to strive to address these current realities, celebrating the potential people with disabilities can contribute to their societies if provided the opportunities.

This DSI project aims to build and conduct disability trainings to address this, not for, but alongside of our Cambodian partners including people with disabilities who want the same, equipping and empowering them to continue promoting inclusive development and building sustainable services to improve the lives of those with disabilities within their local communities.
