According to the last census of Myanmar, 1,3 million people in Myanmar are with a form of disability. Also, 35.6% of the population between 15 and 64 in Myanmar are either economically inactive or unemployed, of which nearly 6% are with a form of disability. It is important that people with disabilities are assisted in increasing their possibilities to participate in the labor market, so they can reduce their vulnerability and enhance their livelihood.

Our partner The Leprosy Mission Myanmar (TLMM) has been supporting people with disabilities and livelihoods and rights in Myanmar for ten years through the REVEAL project. This project is REVEAL phase 4 and the continuation of the initiative to enhance alternative livelihood for people with disabilities to have a dignified income through capacity building, health support, assistance for improved access to financial support like credit, and facilitation of evolvement of legal measures to ensure people with disabilities and right to dignified livelihoods.

The previous three phases were carried out in two-year terms, and this fourth phase will run for three years. Until 2018, the project benefits at least 1,500 people with a disability and aims to:
1. Registration mechanism of people with disabilities established and beneficiaries in the project area are registered to have access to social protection measures;

2. Necessary measures are taken and the participation of people with disabilities in on the labor market increased;

3. People with disabilities are empowered in secure and sustainable livelihoods.
