To enable inclusion and empowerment of persons with disabilities including persons affected by leprosy,NLR India has successfully established Community based People’s Institutions in the forms of Self-Help Groups (SHGs), Village Development Committees (VDCs), Block Development Committees (BDCs), Disabled People’s organizations (DPOs) and Leprosy People’s Organization (LPO). These institutions have successfully demonstrated their effectiveness in community-based rehabilitation of persons with disabilities including families affected by leprosy. Though these structures, people are able to voice for their right and entitlements with the duty bearers and lead an empowered and dignified life.
