The general perception about the ability of PWDs to work has been negative. PWDs have faced a lot of discrimination and are denied access to work to enable them to make a decent income. As a result, majority of them depend on family members and friends for a living. Some are forced to resort to begging on the streets. CEPD sensitizes employers and the public on disability issues and how to manage PWDs at the workplace while make a business case for employing persons with disability.
CEPD Ghana targets employers, policy makers (Parliaments, Ministries, Departments, Agencies, Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) and unemployed PWDs)
Journalists wishing to use case studies, or contact the individuals and companies named, should get in touch with the CEPD Office so that we can arrange the necessary permissions.
An extensive photographic and video library is also available.
Journalists are welcome to visit CEPD Ghana premises
