(A).RESEARCH PROBLEM.
Tanzania like other development countries, has so many problems which are faced the disabled, including poverty, hunger, HIV/AIDS diseases or Health care, Education etc various researches relealed that HIV/AIDS disease is a one motive of poverty and hunger to disabled because AIDS is assassination and cause the loss of productive groups, manpower and is increased the cost of supporting and cares the patients, orphans, widows, burnt and treatments: since detection of the first AIDS Victims in Kagera region in 1983 about two millions of the people has affected with HIV/AIDS, some of thousand people died with AIDS and it is continue to kill our relationship, friends, works employer and loss the National manpower. This situation is a reason of poverty and hunger which faced disabled in our country.
Also the disabled are faced with the problem of Education, because disabled they are not appraised in an education. For Example, there is not and enough schools and specialists teachers for disabled can not reach, and there is not insufficiency teaching materials such as hearing AIDS sets, Dictionaries of sign Language etc. This is a big problem faced disabled in our area.
The economic is constant because we are in free market due to the democracy we have. But economic system still in the hands of few people those they have but small peasants and disabled suffer from extreme poverty due to the fact that they are not involved in decision making about the price of their crops as lack modern tools to conduct their agricultural where by pesticides are not avail able although the can not afford to buy them. This is a big problem faced disabled.
