Work WITH US
TLMN community projects work mainly on a self-help group model, where people affected by leprosy, other disabilities and from other marginalized groups are encouraged to meet together on a regular basis, discuss their issues and support each other. These groups are provided with training on group management, income generation, leadership, rights and more. As well as starting micro-enterprises groups are also encouraged to undertake small projects with local communities, seeking to change attitudes and develop a normal level of participation in society.
