dc.description.abstractSelf-help organizations of people with disabilities are weak compared with other NGOs that have emerged during the same period, particularly those dealing with the environment or with women’s and children’s rights. Key reasons for this relative weakness include the marginalization of people with disabilities from mainstream development programmes, which has given them a low level of skills and poor self- esteem. In addition, as a social group, people with disabilities face limited contact and communication. This is caused not only by their poor access to transport and communication infrastructure, but also by divisions among people with different types of disabilities, and any other divisions (such as gender, caste or ethnic group) that affect the cohesiveness of society and social groups.
