CA thereafter went to visit and to discuss with the local partners and beneficiaries from the project titled "Empower People with Disabilities" implemented in Gio Linh district, Quang Tri province, funded by CA and DFAT via SRD. CA appreciated positive changes and impact brought by the project to the lives of people with disabilities (PWD) and communities of the 5 project communes. For instance, the setting up and development of the PWD clubs since 2012 from 2 groups with more than 50 members to 5 clubs with nearly 300 PWD and CWD caregivers have brought PWD altogether in a common house for not only spiritual improvement but also for other social benefits to enable PWD to overcome their inferiority complex and to open themselves to the inside community and the world outside. In addition, income generation activities introduced by the project helped stabilize revenue of the PWD and their families and promote their confidence in mutual support among themselves as well as in moving onward with empowerment and better voice and of course with barriers behind.
