Project Originality, Necessity and Justification 

 

Persons with Disabilities are among the poorest, needy, vulnerable, marginalized, underprivileged, deprived, under-served, disadvantaged and minority groups in Ghana. They are often taken for granted segment within communities and society. And regrettably, are predominantly confined to the periphery of economic, social, democratic, political, cultural, community, societal, family and developmental structures. Though, they have formidable potentials and the talents to contribute meaningfully to social, cultural, economic and national development when given the right tools, opportunities, linkages, training, capacity-building and support.

Evidently, but not a surprise, the prevailing conditions exposes this group to, and are forced to face enormous, diverse and intrinsically intertwined pervasive, systemic and emerging human or minority rights and developmental challenges, difficulties, issues and/or barriers within Ghana. These challenges, difficulties, issues and/or barriers include and not limited to those highlighted below;

  • Pervasive prejudices, stereotypes, glass ceilings and tokenism.
  • Aggravated social, cultural, economic and political exclusion and injustice.
  • Systemic inequality, neglect, alienation, discrimination, stigmatization, bullying and victimization.
  • Horrific forms of sexual, domestic, marital and relationships violence, abuse, molestation, exploitation and rape.
  • Excruciating lack of conducive, accessible and enabling sustainable environments, opportunities, linkages and support systems for self-actualization, determination and development.
  • Endemic poverty, illiteracy, lack of access to investment or financial capital, sustainable and decent work, jobs or employment, income generation opportunities, linkages and support systems, quality education, health care or medical services, training, capacity-building and applicable or employable skills acquisition.
  • Extremely pathetic mobility, buildings, transportation, public and/or private spaces and places, other facilities, amenities and infrastructure. Including and in particular, tourist sites, attractions, locations and other places of interest, information, official, social and community events, programs and activities accessibility.

Through the provision of sustainable and decent employment, alternative livelihoods, job creation, income generation and livelihoods improvement tools, opportunities, linkages and support systems, Persons with Disabilities, who regrettably, are among the poorest, needy, vulnerable, deprived, underprivileged, marginalized and minority groups. And also less or uneducated, unskilled and semi-skilled labor force within Ghana, also become more robust, resilient, resourceful, self-reliant, thriving and empowered economically and socially to both fend for themselves and contribute meaningfully to national development.

It is for these reasons that Kra Travel (Kra Integrated Solutions Ltd), a Ghana based tourism, travel and hospitality development, management, solutions and promotion Social Enterprise (SE), is poised to responding more to the needs of the disabled in Ghana by exposing them to places, opportunities, linkages and support systems hitherto unknown or unexploited in the country.

In a “walking the talk and leading by example mindset”, Kra Travel (Kra Integrated Solutions Ltd), also, has a Person with Disability as its General Manager, and exploring many other ways through which the organization can continue to open doors of opportunities, linkages and support systems for the vulnerable in the Ghanaian society, and leveraging sustainable and decent work, jobs or employment, alternative livelihoods, job creation, income generation and livelihoods improvement.

On the basis of these deep rooted and compelling passions, motivation, inspiration, responsibilities, desires, interests, zeal, enthusiasm and commitments. This person-centered project, “Innovative Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (IEPD)”, was strategically conceptualized, developed and introduced. Especially, in recognition of the tourism, travel and hospitality industrial sector‘s intrinsically intertwined strategic and sustainable social, cultural, economic, business, entrepreneurial, alternative livelihoods, employment, jobs creation, income generation, livelihoods improvement and developmental linkages and opportunities.

Through this strategic person-centered project, “Innovative Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (IEPD)”.

Under which such projects or programs are conceptualized, developed and introduced.

Clearly, this person-centered sustainable development, economic, social and humanitarian opportunities, linkages and support systems project was conceptualized, developed and introduced based on extensive professional practice, hands-on and real-life experiences with Persons with Disabilities within Ghana.

Kra Travel's approach is to offer training and capacity-building in strategic business, entrepreneurship, preparation for employment, skills acquisition, and other income generation activities that will take cognizant of the strengths and weaknesses associated with disabilities.

And the organization’s competence and capacity to successfully undertake and complete this project.
