Brief Introduction

As there is a huge lack of data, statistics, information about the Women with Disabilities there are very few website which provide information on the same. The few web based information however is mostly of information about the WWDs of Australia, USA, UK and other developed countries but one can hardly get the same about WWDs in Asia and more precisely of South Asia. To address the need this website was launched to provide information on WWDs of South Asia. Perhaps this is the only website which focused on the situation of WWDs of the region. The objective is to bring women with disabilities from the South Asia region to the forefront and providing them a platform for sharing views, discussing issues affecting them. The uniqueness of the site is it not only provides information, shares resources but also has a live discussion forum for WWDs and others to share their issues, ideas, news and views.

The site aims to bring Women with Disabilities of the South Asian region together with the broader vision of strengthening their voice to fight for equal rights and opportunities.

The website is an initiative under the project โ€œCreating spaces for women with disabilities (WWD) to communicate and advocate for their rightsโ€, supported by DFID, UK. The project is a regional initiative and being implemented by three core partners in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka with technical assistance by Healthlink Worldwide, UK based and the project is supported by DFID, UK
