II. BACKGROUND INFORMATION
In 2010, The Rwanda Union of Blind (RUB), the Rwanda National Union of the Deaf (RNUD) and the Rwanda National Association of Deaf Women (RNADW) realized that in their work, they come across people with dual disability of Deafness and blindness and the three organizations had difficult to support them. People with the disability of Deafblindness are often hidden and have no possibility to communicate. Since deafblindness is a rare disability, they live far from each other and scattered in the country so, few people have any idea of how to deal with them.
The three Organisations RUB, RNUD& RNADW found that it is necessary to combine their efforts in a common action which aimed at bringing to the foreknowledge of this disability.
With a support of Swedish funders, MYRIGHT through partnership with FSDB , the three organizations took initiative to implement the Deafblind project (first phase of the project which started from 2010-2013 and a second phase of the project which started in 2015 and phase out in 2017).
From the date of the project implementation, the number of People with Deafblindness increases; and to date, 130 people with Deafblindness have been identified.
In the past, the three organizations mainly focused on inaccessible communication for people with Deafblindness and the community mindset towards them.
As part of this response, on behalf of other two mentioned national disability organizations, RUB is now seeking a qualified accountant who will have the main responsibility for the Project accounting.
