Piloting the development of adapted tools for people with disabilities.

Enablement worked with LMM to develop and pilot the development of adapted (farming) tools for people with disabilities in the agricultural sector. These tools make it easier for individuals with a variety of disabilities to be more productive when working in agricultural jobs and other income-generating activities. 


A manual is created for the production and use of adapted tools. It contains practical information on necessary materials and simple building and adaptation instructions. All tools can be developed at low cost, to ensure sustainability and reproduction on a wide scale. The designs of the tools are derived from various existing sources, such as from AgrAbility and the International Labour Organisation (ILO).  

An example of how to make a farming tool, as described within the manual (Enablement, 2018):
