History and Key Successes of the Organisation
A Brief History of the Organisation
Disabled people have for a long time been deprived of their rights, education, health, Government services and have faced discrimination in the Community. In the beginning of this organisation, there were no guidelines and policies, nor any supporting/funding body. After several meetings with the DDC office, NDPF finally got financial support to train ten disabled people in candle production.
Disable Protection Forum (DPF), Rukum is a non-Governmental, non-profit, non-religious organisation. DPF is a disability led organisation and it believes strongly in inclusiveness and the participation of disabled people in every aspect of Society. This organisation was founded and registered at the District Administration Office in 2003 and is affiliated with the Social Welfare Council in the same year.
