Eighteen local youths received training from UMN on disability data collection in Rukum earlier this week. They have also learned about disability, its types and issues. There is a lack of data on people with disabilities which has prevented the municipalities to design projects for this vulnerable group. The data collected in the future will be used by Musikot Municipality and Bafikot Rural Municipality (who had requested UMN for the training) to develop disability profile of their areas. UMN actively works in the area of disability with the goal of giving them an improved quality life as equal citizens.
