L'Arche in Uganda has launched a disability awareness programme in churches, schools and other public spaces with the aim of helping to change a deep rooted cultural suspicion of disability.

In Zimbabwe, L'Arche Harare has brought new skills, new relationships and above all dignity to Farai, a disabled member of the Community who takes great pride in his important new role. He is in charge of welcoming customers, loading sales of flour into customers cars, closing the gates when work is done. He also sweeps up the mill house floor so that nothing is wasted. Through this work, Farai is an ambassador not just for L'Arche, but for all Zimbabweans with learning disabilities. He helps to transform his fellow countrymen's view of disability.
