Working together with organizations for persons with disabilities, companies and other partners involved in championing and promoting the rights of persons with disabilities, Kadiwaku Family Foundation is implementing a programme enabling persons with disabilities to participate in entrepreneurship training and to receive financial support in order to develop a sense of autonomy, since entrepreneurship can help persons with disabilities participate in the job market and be socially and economically active, as far as possible, depending on their situation.
