The LDWDC is a non-profit organisation run by Lao women with disabilities for Lao women with disabilities. We are here to assist people cope with their disability and advocate for the rights of  women with disabilities because too often people’s attitudes are a bigger challenge than the disability itself. Everyone has unique abilities because everyone is different.

  Our community of women with disabilities support each other, and we encourage women with disabilities to be independent by offering training in income generating activities and life skills, and, we educate women about their civil rights. We empower women. We help women to become leaders in society.

 When the world says it is not possible, the LDWDC says, YES it is possible!
