Ms Janet Kundegyan, a physically challenged participant working on LIPW site at Gbare in Jirapa District
Forty-eight (48) physically challenged persons in the Upper West Region have been provided with temporary employment under the Labour Intensive Public Works (LIPWs).
The project gives special attention to physically challenged persons in the targeting of beneficiaries. These persons were full of praise to the management of GSOP LIPW for not discriminating against them. They were happy that they have also been able to earn some income from working as beneficiaries on the project.
According to them they are now able to contribute to their families’ budget which has raised their status in their families and the community at large.
