Livelihoods

The term 'livelihoods' can be understood as the means of earning a living or accessing a source of income. People with disabilities in developing countries face a multitude of barriers to securing decent livelihoods. This is primarily due to social discrimination and stigma, a pervasive negative view that people with disabilities are either unable to work or cannot be accommodated in the workplace. However, in terms of poverty reduction strategies for the global south, livelihoods relates to a range of activities and services to promote the inclusion and self-reliance of people with disabilities.
