Neema Crafts When Neema Crafts started working with physically disabled adults, most lacked access to disability aids and many had never seen any specialist or doctor. 15 % of the population in and around Iringa, where Neema is based in Tanzania, are classified as having a disability. Today Neema provides mobility aides for its staff and has a physio therapy unit to support our staff and children with disabities so they can have a brighter future.
