GRACE was contacted with a few queries, reponses to which are set out below:

1. How will GRACE decide who to provide the equipment to?

Grace has already identified the most deserving 60 PWDs in need of support in kind of assistive devices/equipment and referral services through assessment of collected data and in some cases detail assessment of the PWDs as they come to Grace Office with applications for support.

2. Is there a pre-determined strategy on allocation of equipment between children and adults?

Grace is conducting survey and registering PWDs from all over Baltistan(District Skardu and Ganche) through our volunteers, which is a continuous progress. So far registrations of children and persons with disabilities (PWDs) have been reached up to 200. Although all of these PWDs are in vulnerable conditions and they need support but keeping in view the availability of resources we had to decide on merits and burning needs on priority basis. So, Grace has already identified the most deserving 60 PWDs in need of support in kind of assistive devices/equipment, referral services through assessment of collected data and in some cases detail assessment of the concern PWDs as they now sometime come to Grace Office with applications for support. The assessment has done by a team of experienced Physiotherapist and a Medical Specialist. They are also working with Grace Association.

3. How will GRACE ensure that its objectives have been met?

Grace will carry out a process evaluation to determine the effectiveness and efficiency of the project and its impact on the Disabled People and their communities. The evaluation will include both quantitative and qualitative data collection methods. Attendance List and Participating Sheets will be used to measure the strength of the project components and exposure. The process evaluation will also examine how participants interacted during project implementation and also document changes in relationship before, during and after project implementation as well as fidelity of the intervention. Benchmarks will be tracked through process indicator reports as follows:

Number of staff and volunteers training programs held
Number of Advocacy and Sensitization meetings held
Number of people reached through advocacy and sensitization
Number of PWDs provided with assistive devices
Number of Disabled People successfully referred

4. What is the plan for the Project going forward once this phase ends?

The project aims to have a sustainable impact on the attitudes that the communities where it is implemented have towards PWDs.

Through the project:

The target PWDs will play a more visible roles within their communities after the project
The target PWDs have the opportunity to become more mobile within the community and benefit of available opportunities to acquire new competencies
Through sensitisation their communities will be educated to value PWDs contributions.
Local/Community Based Organizations (CBOs) will be activated for the use.
In the long term, with increased mobility, PWDs will acquire skills to help them create income for themselves and to contribute to raise funds for the sustainability of the project
Findings from the evaluation process will be submitted to the relevant local authorities to raise Government funds to develop the project. In addition Grace has already in a dialogues process with Ministry of Social Welfare and Special Education Islamabad to run Inclusive Education Project in Baltistan.
The local Corporate sector will be approached to contribute to the sustainability and further development of the project through donations and to establish an Independent Living and Information Centre in the area.
International Funders will also be approached for grants.
