Leading by example the head of the organization holding the ball in blue, learn from me as he was teaching members how to play an interesting game. Volley ball is a game which persons with disabilities have picked interest in because its easy to play so far teams have been formed to play competitively however we still lack equipments which is now our major challenge.

Poverty is considered to be a major obstacle to any development effort. It denies the disabled the choices leaving most of them vulnerable without any alternative but rather struggling to survive. The relation between poverty and disability is commonly accepted as a vicious cycle,its a two way realationship. Disability adds to the risk of poverty and conditions of poverty increase the risk of disability, Disability places constraints on an individuals earning capacity through sometimes a reduced ability to work,lack of accessibility in work environment and discrimination.

Its very unfortunate that after nine months in the mothers womb a baby is born only to be disabled, Its frustrating to both the parents the child and the entire community. I appeal to the disability community to learn to live with it. For those who think that once disabled then you are useless that is a wrong mentality and must be dealt with, We can perfom to ones expectations once given chance. Some unqualified health personels have also contributed to cause disability by improper injections, wrong dosages, prescribing the use of medicines.
Disability is once and for all and can be prevented but it needs combined efforts.
