Research : To empower youth with disabilities

In many developing countries the voices of youth with disabilities are not heard. As persons with
disabilities, they face multiple physical and social barriers to participate fully in society. As young
people, they are typically confronted with societal contributions to society in general. This makes the
empowerment of youth with disabilities a crucial goal to pursue. The question is, however, what is
needed for such empowerment to occur. While there is an extensive literature on empowerment, very
few studies have examined interventions targeting youth with disabilities. Drawing on evidence in
Zambia, this paper seeks to address this gap.
