Vuniwaqa says these women have formed groups and are able to earn an income through their artistic abilities and skills to craft and design products.
She also pointed out that twenty-four schools that have children with disabilities receive special education grants.
Vuniwaqa made this comments at a High Level Intergovernmental meeting on the Midpoint Review of the Asian and Pacific Decade of Persons with Disabilities.
