This study was commissioned by SAFOD to determine, among others, whether Disabled People's Organisations (DPOs) have the required and necessary skills for conducting continuous research in areas that affect disabled people in Lesotho. The findings are discussed in relation to existing capacity within DPOs in terms of research skills; marginalisation and vulnerability of disabled people; and existing organisational and and managerial structures. The key recommendations relate to priority training needs; strategic human rights and legal advocacy; and utilization of strategic partnership
