Many disabled people on Lombok are sitting at home without employment. There are not a lot of businesses who want to hire them, because having a disability comes with a lot prejudice on Lombok. Some people are afraid that the disabled are punished by God, other thinks they cannot do any meaningful work or that having a disability is infectious.
Harapan Baru Lombok helps disabled people find meaningful employment by creating micro-enterprises. We can help participants by finding internships with successful business owners, finding credit or investments for them, and support them with marketing and sales . We visit participants every week, to measure progress and support them where needed.
