Nafanya kazi katika chuo cha ufundi kwa watu wenye ulemavu, nina plan ya Kuanzisha uncubation program kwa ajili ya vijana wenye ulemavu ili waweze kufanya shughuli za kiuchumi na baadae kupatiwa vifaa. Katika kipindi cha incubation, vijana wataunganishwa na taasisi mbalimbali za fedha na ujasiriamali na baadae kupatiwa vitendea kazi, hii itasaidia katika kukabiliana na changamoto ya upatikanaji wa ajira baada ya mafunzo ya ufundi. Pia nitaandaa soko au maonyesho ya ujasiriamali yaani periodic entrepreneurs market/exhibition kwa wajasiriamali wenye ulemavu kwa mwaka mara mbili.

The Moshi Epignosis Physiotherapy Clinic (EPT) aims at bridging the gap of
rehabilitation services in Tanzania. Often people with disabilities, end up
lying in bed at their homes. This not only increases the severity of their
disability and level of dependence but they become more prone to develop
secondary complications like contractures, hypostatic and/or aspiration
pneumonia, and pressure sores, to mention a few. Without the necessary
interventions, most people die prematurely.
Moshi EPT’s goal is to reduce the mortality and morbidity rate among people with disabilities as well as to decrease their level of dependency by empowering them to exhaust all their potential. We work hard to help maximize their body function, enabling them to engage in livelihood activities and become as independent as possible.
The clinic is also devoted to provide education to the community so as to raise awareness about rehabilitation services as well as to enable the society to play their role in the rehabilitation of people with disabilities. We get opportunities to train medical students and other community members on various aspects of disability management. On the other hand we provide education to the community aiming at preventing diseases and disabilities which are lifestyle related.
We take responsibility to ensure the availability and the use of the proper assistive and therapeutic devices to people with disabilities. We have pioneered the local manufacturing of devices such as wheelchairs, standers, commodes tilting tables etc. ensuring good quality, affordability and that the devices conform to our settings.
We have been seizing every opportunity to advocate for rights of people with disabilities and other disability issues. We have been on radio, newspaper and social media educating and appealing on disability matters.
Currently we have three full time staff; the manager and other two personnel who provide direct care to the clients. Direct care to the clients include; cooking, washing, cleaning, bathing, feeding, toileting, transfer and other self-care activities of the clients. We also have a volunteer physiotherapist who works part time.
