What We Do
Our projects are designed to widen participation, increase educational and
employment opportunities for people with disabilities through the use of Assistive
Alongside with community workers in different areas of Rwanda, RATA
intervenes in 4 areas which are: “Raising Awareness and Advocacy on the use and
importance of Assistive technology, Capacity development, Inclusive education
“ In 2019, I was fortunate to participate in a training on
Assistive Technology conducted by
RATA which inspired me to establish an Assistive Technology
club at the University of
Rwanda- Huye Campus this year. I think this club will help
students with disabilities at our
campus who need such technologies”
“I'm very grateful for the skills I gained during RATA training. As a language teacher, I learned
how to make comprehension texts more accessible for my students by turning them into audio
recordings. Additionally, I also developed skills on how to confidently create school materials
and resources that students with visual impairments will find easy to use. "
“I am a Geography and History teacher at HVP GATAGARA-Rwamagana. We had particular
difficulties while teaching using maps and images. In this training, I have acquired the skills that
help to deal with that. I am now confident that I can teach my students without these challenges.
Also, notes used to be printed poorly without a title, but due to the skills that I now possess,
Word documents will be published well and quickly converted to Braille. "
“As a resource room facilitator at University of Rwanda-Nyagatare Campus,

accessible documents, using braille displays, victor readers, braille embossers,...
but after attending RATA training on Assistive Technology, I am now able to overcome
