ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate the barriers to the participation of disabled persons in the development of Mamfe central, in some selected areas of Mamfe central. To conduct the study, both quantitative and qualitative research approaches were used. The participants of the study were 70 participants, 50 persons with disability and 20 physically abled persons. In the selection of the sample population, random sampling was used. The main instruments of data collection were questionnaires and interviews. The data was analyzed using percentages. The findings of the study revealed that majority of persons with disability are not taking part in development activities but the few who are participating, hold important positions as seen in the research. However most of them want to start participating in development activities, if they would have the opportunities. The most identified barrier to the participation of disabled persons in development are marginalization, discrimination and violation by most family members. Finally the study suggests points to solve problems for participation of persons with disability in Mamfe central, like promoting the spirit of brotherhood in Mamfe central, easily accessible roads to people with disability, sensitization and integration of disabled persons in the society, so as to achieve “a society for all”.  Download
