Rebuilding Economies after Typhoon Ketsana and Strengthening Baras Municipality Utilities for an Inclusive Local Development (REBUILD Project) is a three-year inclusive livelihood and rights-based project with an objective to improve access of persons with disabilities to different developmental opportunities (livelihood, social, etc.).

To complement this effort, the project will build the capacity of local stakeholders to enable them to implement programs and activities that are more inclusive of persons with disabilities and other vulnerable groups. In addition, the project will build capacity of Baras Disabled People’s Organization so that it becomes a significant and active local development stakeholder that will promote and advance the needs and rights of persons with disabilities in development initiatives. The project aims to contribute in developing an inclusive society with equal opportunities for all.
