How can Libyans with disabilities receive the care they need and also contribute to the future of Libya? At Project TAHIL, we study this issue and find ways to solve this problem.
In Arabic, التأهيل “Tahil” means “rehabilitation.” For us at Project TAHIL, “TAHIL” also stands for “Therapy And Healing In Libya.” The therapy and healing we envision is not only for individual Libyans with disabilities. We also want the Libyan society to better support, honor, and listen to those with disabilities. We expect that as Libyans with disabilities receive greater respect, they themselves will help bring healing to their country.
