The Government of the United Republic of Tanzania (URT) Ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of persons with Disability (CRPD) OF 2006 in 2008 went on to domesticate parts of this treaty (CRPD) through the persons with disabilities Act of 2010 on part of mainland. Despite this achievement on promotion and protection of disability Rights in Tanzania, majority of persons with disability (PWDS) still face myriad of challenges, Assaults, killings, denial of social-economic and political opportunities and generally discrimination against them continue to happen. Numerous stakeholders, especially the disabled persons organizations (DPOs) have therefore been in the forefront to advocate for among other things, presence of pro-disability policies plans and practices as party of the national laws on disability.
