"This action research was conducted in 2011/2012 by ICD to investigate the interaction between disabled and non-disabled community members in Tanzania. Disabled teachers and other human rights activists discussed in a workshop setting and observed in the field to answer the questions of how are PWDs interacting with their communities, how are the communities interacting with PWDs and what are the challenges (and possible solutions) of their activist work...This research wanted to get a comprehensive picture of the current situation of PWDs in Tanzania. It concludes that mutual distrust is the main attitude that characterizes the relationship between disabled and non-disabled Tanzanians and that only intensive and targeted confrontations and exchanges between the two parties can achieve a signifi cant attitude change"
