Our Programs

1. Disability Right and Advocacy Program

OHANA is a disability rights based organization. Our organization has two major focuses, both surrounding the groundbreaking UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, as well Agenda 2030 (Sustainable Development Goals). We have been working hard to both advocate for these fundamental human rights as well as develop a sustainable framework for local, national and international governmental levels!


Our comprehensive wheelchair services program, specifically designed to develop and empower DPOs and assist them in learning about services, technology, appropriate gear maintenance as well as to develop these projects independently as a livelihood for local DPOs.

We believe that it is imperative, that people be trained in not just assessment, but also properly schooled in the sizing and fitting of both everyday as well as complex seating wheelchairs! These training initiatives and principals can prove invaluable to DPO workers, as it helps them greatly mitigate health risks to the person in need, as well as providing them greatly increased comfort!

2. Preventing and/or Eliminating Gender Based Violance Against Women and Girl With  Disabilities Program

According to UN Women, since the outbreak of COVID-19, emerging reports from those on the front lines have shown that all type of violence against women and girls, has intensified. Women with and girls with disabilities have limited information, awareness, and resources to access social service and other help especially during this time when they are isolated, or violence hidden.


The keystone activity. will leverage OHANA’S program on gender-based violence prevention. This program will take place in Yogyakarta Province and expand to East Nusa Tenggara Island and other areas to reach the most marginalized women with disabilities with np services.


This  new program will include training for leadership skills and health education to improve women and girl’s self-esteem. It will help promote crucial  preventative factors, like coping skills, access to social  or legal  services, and community connecteess.

4. OHANA Craft


Accoding to the ILO, women with disabilities are less likely to have a decent job than either non-disabled women or men with disabilities. Women with disabilities, many who are falling deeper into proverty, are often without access to land and other assets, health services, and basic needs. Government social assistance is non-existent.


This is a pilot activity that will support household with supplemental income from a poultry raising tailoring, wheelchair reapir shop, or other appropriate livelihood activity.


OHANA will identify women wiyh disabilities who have the aptitude and conditions to start a small-scale social enterprise. Trouugh this project, women will access start-up funding, technical assistance, and vocational training. On-going coaching will support the women in the initial start-up phase.For hand-crafted bags, OHANA will market the products on a new on-line website. private philanthropic funding will support the first 3 pilots for the poultry raising activity.

5. OHANA Legal Center (OLC)


The Government of Indonesia has ratified the Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities (CRPD) through Law Number 19 of 2011. This convention aims to guarantee the Human Rights (HAM) of persons with disabilities to participate in society equally without discrimination.


Seeing this, OHANA is supported by Woman Asia (WFA) and in collaboration with PERADI Sleman Yogyakarta to form a group of community representatives who play an active role in socializing and advocating for the rights of persons with disabilities. This group of community representatives is called paralegals.


A paralegal is someone who is not an advocate/lawyer but has knowledge in the field of law because he is trained in law through training held by OHANA. Furthermore, OHANA formed the OHANA Legal Center (OLC) for Paralegals in collaboration with PERADI and related Governments to conduct advocacy for Persons with Disabilities.
