Project Launch: 12-31-69
With this World Connect grant, Caring for Persons With Disabilities (CAPDI) will train 30 members of its existing group in production of face masks using locally available resources to be distributed to 2,000 people, most of whom are people with disabilities and women living with HIV/AIDS. Some of the masks will be sold to generate income for continued production beyond the initial 2,000 masks World Connect will fund. In an effort to enhance inclusiveness and participation for all, CAPDI will run a community education program, sharing COVID-19 prevention messages in line with the World Health Organization (WHO) to 14,337 people. Written materials will be transcribed into an audio version to be accessible for 500 blind people in the area.
