Peruvians with psychosocial and intellectual disabilities face barriers to living independently. Sociedad y Discapacidad (SODIS) helps citizens exercise their legal rights and access civil services that improve their quality of life. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to strengthen governance in Peru. SODIS’ activities encourage civic participation to allow marginalized groups to defend their rights and propel their own development and advocate for government accountability and transparency.
