We particularly acknowledge Anneke Maarse and Ambrose Murangira, Disability Inclusion Advisors from Light for the World for supporting the research process. We would like to show our gratitude to the NUDIPU Program Officer, Deborah Iyute and James Mukwaaya M&E Officer NUDIPU as well as the members of the Inclusive Employment Task Force (the Federation of Ugandan Employers, Equal Opportunity Commission, Ministry of Gender Labour and Social Development, National Organisation of Trade Unions- NOTU, Ministry of Education and Sports) who provided insight and expertise that greatly assisted the research. We are also immensely grateful to all participants of the Focus Group Discussions, surveys, employers in both the public and private sector and employees with disabilities whose experiences and recommendations greatly enriched this research.
