dc.description.abstractThis study is an attempt to explore the rehabilitation training programmes at Yombo Rehabilitation Centre, Dar es Salaam to see the extent to which they allow the disabled graduates to be socially and economically independent and integrated into the Tanzanian Community. I shall argue that although the rehabilitation training pragrammes given at Yombo to impact enough skills to enable the disabled graduates to be self-supporting, the practical reality of translating policy into meaningful programmes has not been dealt with adequately. Therefore the degree of socio-economic integration of the disabled persons into the Tanzanian Community is low and no significant impact on the Tanzania Society has been made it show that the disabled people in this country to receive rehabilitation training to enable them lead a normal life. The study is divided into four chapters. Chapter one introduces the reader to the research problem as mentioned above and also to the expectations which are that 1) the disabled graduates do not acquire enough skills to enable them to fend for themselves, therefore their degree of socio-economic integration into the Tanzanian community is low. 2. The practical reality of translating policy into meaningful programmes has not been dealt with adequately, therefore no significant impact on the Tanzanian society has oven role. Chapter two examines his historically social welfare, before and during colonialism, and after independence. It is ostaolished that before the influence of foreign culture in Tanzania the traditional social structure was so designed that the responsibility for social welfare was with the family. The need for the state’s involvement in social welfare is a recent phenomenon in Tanzania. It arose during the colonial era and its intent motive was to appease the lower classes and to maintain class relations and order. The Tanzania post – colonial state inherited the colonial social welfare structures and perpetuates the intereats of the dominant class. Social welfare services to the handicapped persons have continued to be remedial rather than developmental in character. Chapter three explores the rehabilitation training programmes at Yombo. It is found that five out of six courses offered conform to national standards. An examination into student’s performance in exam revealed encouraging results. Chapter three explores the rehabilitation training programmes at Yombo. It is found that five out of six courses offered conform to national standards. An examination into student’s performance in exams revealed encouraging results. Chapter four analyses the research findings and concludes that although the rehabilitation training programmes at Yombo equip, to some extent, the disabled students to be self-supporting, the resettlement of the some is very inadequate. As much, the disabled graduates are not socially and economically integrated into the minstream of their community. Therefore the practical reality of translating social welfare policy for the handicapped persons has not been made on the Tanzanian society. Social welfare is a class issue; an effective solution to problems related to it would involve radical changes in the whole socio-economic system of Tanzania and the world in general.
