Working towards inclusion: experiences with disability and PRA. In: 52: General issue

This article by Alice Morris, Geeta Sharma, and Deepa Sonpal, highlights the extent of the exclusion experienced by persons with disabilities in India. In a collaborative participatory rural appraisal carried out by two NGOs and 13 grassroots organisations, special tools and approaches were developed to include the perspectives of persons with disabilities. The PRA provided a rare opportunity for persons with disabilities to interact with the community on an equal basis. It created an understanding and awareness of the perceptions and attitudes of both disabled and non-disabled persons, highlighted the reasons why disabled people are excluded, and suggested strategies for promoting inclusion.
