IFFFAP creates media to promote empathy and empowerment for the disability community. Our ultimate goal is to help create a more inclusive society where those with physical and intellectual challenges are treated with respect, and their needs are understood and accommodated.
We find new ways to take on disability perceptions in the society. We want to change attitudes by developing apps, games and media with purpose, heart and meaning. We want to help them establish more infrastructures for them in the society by building of library and also making the required technologies at ease.
We believe in the power of the human experience, the inspiration of the story. Technology and humanity hand in hand.
IFFFAP creates a platform for disability foster homes and experts in the sector to share their knowledge & skills with smaller and emerging Disabled centres to enhance their understanding & knowledge, transfer skills to them, enable them to cover new geographies & to improve the quality of intervention for Persons with Disability.
IFFFAP works in unison with the Government to co-create an extensive working system at the community level and develops processes, structures and systems for effective inclusion of Persons with Disability (PWDs) and improves the quality of support for PWDs, parents, care givers & other stake holders. Our goal is to develop a working relationship, processes, & systems for speedy implementation of different Acts and their provisions.
More than one billion people in the world live with some form of disability, of whom nearly 200 million experience considerable difficulties in functioning. In the years ahead, disability will be an even greater concern because its prevalence is on the rise. This is due to ageing populations and the higher risk of disability in older people as well as the global increase in chronic health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and mental health disorders.
Across the world, people with disabilities have poorer health outcomes, lower education achievements, less economic participation and higher rates of poverty than people without disabilities. This is partly because people with disabilities experience barriers in accessing services that many of us have long taken for granted, including health, education, employment, and transport as well as information. These difficulties are exacerbated in less advantaged communities.
To achieve the long-lasting, vastly better development prospects that lie at the heart of the Social Development Goals and beyond, we must empower people living with disabilities and remove the barriers which prevent them participating in their communities; getting a quality education, finding decent work, and having their voices heard.
This landmark international treaty reinforced our understanding of disability as a human rights and development priority. The World Report on Disability suggests steps for all stakeholders – including governments, civil society organizations and disabled people’s organizations – to create enabling environments, develop rehabilitation and support services, ensure adequate social protection, create inclusive policies and programmes, and enforce new and existing standards and legislation, to the benefit of people with disabilities and the wider community. People with disabilities should be central to these endeavors.
Children with disabilities in Africa are among the most neglected groups in the policy domain as well as in the private sphere. The majority of these children face enormous economic, political, and social barriers that have an adverse impact on their physical, social and intellectual development and well-being. Many of them do not have access to the most basic needs such as health services and education, experience multiple deprivations even within their family and are invisible in national policy agenda.
South Africa is full of opportunities for skilled people, so long as the skills developed match industry needs. That’s why we have chosen skills development training as a focus area. We offer accessible, affordable and relevant skills training and match practical training with placements in industry to help people succeed.
The cost of natural disasters is high, but lives can be saved before they ever occur. As climate change and increasingly erratic weather patterns increase the risks of devastating storms, droughts and floods, we are helping communities identify, assess and reduce their risks. Creating response plans and resilient strategies now
Ending world hunger and poverty requires more than compassion and more than sustainable development. It also requires justice. From overwhelming debt to the repression of women to wars and conflict, issues of social justice are directly linked to poverty and hunger. Even complications related to natural disasters like famine often
