Concern Universal – Disability inclusion and community empowerment in Mozambique

Horácio is visually impaired. He is learning how to type Braille thanks to classes provided by the Association for the Blind and Partially Sighted in Mozambique (ACAMO). During an inspiring three days with Concern Universal in Mozambique, I worked with ACAMO to sell some of its success stories, and also documented the work of an organisation that (among other things) teaches people with disabilities how to make and repair wheelchairs and other disability aids, ensuring that it’s no longer necessary to import such essential items at great expense; and finally that of a volunteer civil society group that was trained in ‘social accountability monitoring’ by Concern, equipping it to monitor public resource management and, in turn, demand better services from local government.
