WELCOME TO ZAPDD®

Zanzibar Association of People with Developmental Disabilities (ZAPDD) is a non-govermental organization established in 1999 by parents of children with intellectual disabilities, for the purpose of promoting the welfare of people with intellectual disabilities in Zanzibar.
The establishment of this organization occurred when the parents realized problems facing people with intellectual disabilities including lack of education, segregation in different aspects of life, harassment, defamation, abuse and other forms of mistreatment. The focus of Association activities is on advocacy and lobbying for the right of people with intellectual disabilities.
