January 15: Overcoming Obstacles in Ghana

Adisah used to feel neglected by her family in Ghana. Because she was born with a hearing and speech impairment, Adisah was not given the opportunity to attend school. Years later, she received the care she needed at the Garu Community Based Rehabilitation Centre. The centre—which assists people living with disabilities to overcome challenges and access vocational support—offered Adisah training in agricultural production. Adisah worked very hard and soon became a successful farmer. Together with her husband Salam, they are producing enough food for their three children. Salam recently remarked, “My wife is a blessing to me. I thank God for the support from the centre and PWS&D to make us what we are today”.

PWS&D provides support to people living with disabilities
