Lesotho National Federation of Organisations of the Disabled (LNFOD)

Established in 1989 the Lesotho National Federation of Organisations of the Disabled (LNFOD) is the umbrella body of disabled people’s organisations in Lesotho. LNFOD’s mission is to promote and protect the rights of people with disabilities by representing their needs to the government, development partners, and other stakeholders. Members of the federation are the Lesotho National Association of Physically Disabled (LNAPD), Intellectual Disability Association of Lesotho (IDAL), and Lesotho National League of the Visually Impaired Persons (LNLVIP) and National Association of the Deaf in Lesotho (NADL). Over the years the organisation has had numerous successes through its advocacy which include: ratification of UN-CRPD by the Lesotho government in 2008; adoption of National disability and rehabilitation policy in 2011; adoption of disability as a cross aspect of development by the National plan 2012-17 and drafting of disability specific legislation in 2014.
