Following up on the Disability Summit in Rwanda in June, we would like to recognize 11 organizations that have shown a commitment to empowerment and inclusivity. I am pleased to salute these organizations formed of people with disabilities who will benefit from this project. Each organization will receive $4,000 to implement various projects, from making soap and candles to training on inclusion and economic initiatives.
I ask USAID’s Gender and Disability Coordinator, Triphine Munganyinka, to call up the organizations to the stage and describe each project. Minister Shyaka, Humanity and Inclusion, and I will then hand out a check to each cooperative and invite you to join us in applauding their efforts.
