Zambia: Disability and ICTs

The disabled of our community have limited mobility, lack of equal consideration in society and other related social and economic constraints. In Zambia, disabled face discrimination in many ways, due to their disabilities, poverty and illiteracy. They have no skills and access to technologies that would enable them to have online presence. They need equal representation, their voices are needed online so as to have their views head.
