Globally, children with disabilities are among the most vulnerable, marginalized groups. They are often isolated and hidden away, facing discrimination and even abuse. As families and caregivers face the expensive burden of caring for a child with disabilities, it may prevent them from accessing training they need to find employment–furthering the cycle of poverty.
At CURE hospitals, caregivers can take advantage of vocational training classes that help them learn marketable skills–opening the door to new possibilities and helping families secure needed income. Training includes lessons on knitting, soap making, gardening, tailoring, cooking, and jewelry making.
