Disability Mainstreaming Status in Zimbabwe


In Zimbabwe, the disability movement had been able to advocate for the adoption of sign language as one of the national languages. Accessibility issues had also been addressed.

 

Participants however, resolved that the Federation of Organizations of Disabled People in Zimbabwe (FODPZ) – the official national affiliate of SAFOD – ought to intensify advocacy for the implementation of the existing policy framework no matter how bad the policies could be.

 

Often, political situations had implications on the success level of disability activists. Zimbabwe’s political situation was cited as unfavorable to the growth of disability work.

 

For instance, because of the bad leadership in Zimbabwe most donors such as DANIDA, Finland, etc., had withdrawn funding.
