Together with ZAFOD, ZAPCD shares a vision of a society where persons with disabilities enjoy equal rights and opportunities that are generally available in society and are necessary for the fundamental rights including education, employment, health, housing, financial and personal security. ZAPCD has delivered projects focused on supporting the employment of young people with disabilities in partnership with Sani Foundation, a program that primarily supported youth with intellectual impairments.
