Stereotypes, attitudes and behaviours
The Global Concerns Trust work with MACOHA (Malawi Council for the Handicapped) and KODO (Kuthandiza Osayenda Disability Outreach)to decrease stigma attached to disability in rural Malawi by providing training, tools and support to adults with disabilities and supporting them to start successful and sustainable businesses. This results in a change in perception within rural communities towards people with disabilities and demonstrates their potential to be successful business leaders who contribute economically and socially.

Timeframe and/or implementation plan 
By October 2018 we will have supported 355 adults with disabilities living in rural areas of Malawi to start sustainable businesses and become financially independent, 50% of whom will be women. We will work to source funding to continue and expand our disability specific projects in Malawi, to include the provision of disability mainstreaming training to a wide range of international development organisations working in country.
