Around the world, People with disabilities encounter multiple challenges. Apart from social stigmas, attitudes and ignorance, the most difficult challenge is to have an independent life and employment opportunity. In developing countries, 80% to 90% of persons with disabilities of working age are unemployed, whereas in industrialized countries the figure is between 50% and 70%. Their unemployment rate is much higher than that of the general population.
