Disability Services Project
HWC works with a People With Disabilities (PWD) organisation for Haku, the Haku Hatsipito Disability Organisation, which is linked with the Bougainville Disability People's Organisation and held its official launch on 3 December 2018.
HWC recruited an AVI Volunteer to work on inclusion of people with disabilities and with the Technical Working Group on designing disability services for Bougainville.
Aims of the project
The overall aim is to address the significant disability needs of children and adults living in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, PNG, including the Atolls. Contemporary understanding is that disability support requires a multi-element approach drawing on a thorough understanding of the whole person, the context of their life and their support needs.
