1. Background of THT
The Troupe des Personnes Handicapées TWUZUZANYE (THT) is an organization of persons with Impairments created in 2004 with an idea of doing advocacy through drama, theatres and traditional dances. It is made of all types of impairments and currently, THT has 86 members with 49 female and 37 male. THT is a Non-Government Organization, legally registered for the first time in 2009 and the registration has been renewed in 2012 n029/11 to complete the new law number 04/2012 of 17/02/2012 governing NGOs in RWANDA THT is one of the 8 organizations that have come together to create the umbrella organization (UPHLS).
Despite a number of laws and policies designed to protect the rights of persons with disabilities there are still many cultural and practical barriers which prevent persons with disabilities from being fully included and integrated in society. This means many persons with disabilities are still failing to access their rights: persons with disabilities are less likely to attend school, less likely to be literate, less likely to be working and more likely to be poor compared to the general population of Rwanda.
The key issues for people with disabilities in Rwanda were identified by THT members as a lack of education, Accessing SRH Services, low employment, poverty and ill-health. This is reflected by the evidence in the most recent Fourth Rwanda Population and Housing Census (2012). A failure to access quality education impacts on literacy rates, 50% of persons with disability are illiterate compared to 28% of persons without disability. This results in a much lower number of people engaged in economic activity (formal or informal): 56% of persons with disabilities are engaged in economic activity, compared to 75% of the population without a disability. The majority of persons with disability in work are in “on-farm” un-waged work. Persons with disabilities are identified in the new Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) as “those who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual, or sensory impairments which, in interaction with various barriers, may hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others”. Although the CRPD states that persons with (PWD) have the right to experience parenthood, to marry and found a family, todecide on the number and spacing of children and have the means to exercise this right, access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care, for persons with disabilities, has remained unacceptably low in many developing countries including Rwanda. PWD still face discrimination, and exclusion from health services on account of disability, this year THT has received a 1 Year grant from AmplifyChange to support building up on our project dubbed; advocating for inclusive sexual and reproductive health services for persons with disabilities in Rwanda.
