Ethiopia

Democracy has existed in Ethiopia since 1995, but the country's political landscape has been characterized by challenges and conflicts, and Ethiopia is one of the most economically challenged countries in the world.

In Ethiopia, ENAPPD, the Ethiopian National Association of Persons with Physical Disabilities, is a prominent partner organization working with MyRights to promote the social, economic and political rights of people with physical disabilities across the country. Through close cooperation with various ministries and regional authorities, ENAPPD plays a crucial role in ensuring that people with physical disabilities can exercise their human rights, enjoy equal opportunities and fully participate in society. The target group for the organization includes both women and men with disabilities.

ENAPPD is a national organization that collaborates with several ministries, including the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Transport and various regional and local authorities. This collaboration has been instrumental in advancing laws and specific guidelines aimed at improving the quality of life of people with disabilities in Ethiopia. These laws and guidelines include the right of persons with disabilities to be employed and to own property in Ethiopia. ENAPPD has thus functioned as a significant force in ensuring justice and equality for persons with disabilities in the country.
