15 per cent of the world’s population is estimated to live with a disability according to the joint report of the World Bank and the World Health Organization. Available data indicate that persons with disabilities are at higher risk of poverty than their counterparts without disabilities in both developed and developing countries. Unfortunately, many countries, especially in the DR Congo where over 10.5 million persons are estimated to have a disability no measures have been taken; and social protection is largely overlooked. Family Foundation works towards helping to address accessibility in all spheres of life and will empower persons with disabilities through the application of economic concepts and an entrepreneurial approach in order to enhance their quality of life and living standards. Working together with organizations for persons with disabilities, compagnies and other partners involved in championing and promoting the rights of persons with disabilities, Kadiwaku Family Foundation is implementing a programme enabling persons with disabilities to participate in entrepreneurship training and to receive financial support in order to develop a sense of autonomy, since entrepreneurship can help persons with disabilities participate in the job market and be socially and economically active, as far as possible, depending on their situation.
