Paper Recycling Project
Paper Recycling Project
The National Centre for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD) is a private non-profit organization involved in the development and integration of persons with disabilities into the wider community. It was established on December 05, 1964 and registered under the Companies Act of Trinidad and Tobago in May 1984 as a Company Limited by Guarantee. A nine (9) member Voluntary Board of Directors which is involved in policy formation and fund raising, governs the Centre.

The organization is applying to the UNDP Global Environment Facility Small Grants Programme for funds to undertake the setting up of a paper recycling project for persons with disabilities. The project will be implemented over a 12 month period. The primary objective of the project is to create training opportunities for persons with disabilities in the area of hand-made recycled paper.

Some of the main activities to be undertaken during the period will include the setting up of the training area, the acquisition and installation of furniture, machines, utensils and equipment for training in and teaching the art of making hand-made recycled paper. There will be paper, magazine collection drives. This will be done within the wider community from NGOs, private sector, government and other agencies and will be an indicator of community support. Training will be conducted for 15 young adults male and female persons with disabilities in the art of producing hand-made recycled paper, the creation of select fashion accessories, stationery and other items from the recycled paper. The training will be conducted over an 8-month period. An indicator would be the quality and quantity of work produced by the trainees as well as the marketability of the products.

The rational for the project is the provision of creative an innovative training opportunity for persons with disabilities which would afford this vulnerable group of persons the opportunity to earn sustainable livelihoods.

The project falls within the GEF/SGP focal area of land degradation and will encapsulate the issues of sustainable livelihoods.
