The Independent Disabled Empowerment Program

One of the core mission of our NGO is to provide care and empowerment for the disabled people in our community. We believe that disability should not be a barrier to living a fulfilling and dignified life.

As a result we through the support of corporate bodies and well-meaning individuals offer various services and programs to support disabled people in their daily needs, education, employment, health, and social inclusion.

SOWD Initiative also advocate for their rights and interests, and raise awareness about the challenges and opportunities they face. Our NGO is run by a team of dedicated staff and volunteers, who are compassionate and have experience in working with disabled people.

We welcome anyone who shares our vision and values to join us as a member, donor, partner, or volunteer. Let’s create an inclusive and supportive environment for individuals with disabilities, promoting their well-being and full participation in society.

As our mission is to empower the skilled vulnerable ones in the society, Sowd Initiative from their capacity was able to empower 26 physically challenged individuals among them were the crippled, blind, deaf and dumb. Among the crippled are shoe makers who were empowered with shoe filing machine and some materials e.g leathers among them also are the tailors who were empowered with cloth sewing machine.

The blind was given a seed capital to start up his liquid soap business with the assistance of his wife, among the deaf and dumb were the caterers and vulcanizers who are empowered with some baking materials and Tier pumping machine.
