LIFE Project Phase 1 Final Report
The Local Inclusive Festival Project (LIFE) is a joint scheme between International Service
and the Sandema Presbyterian Church of Ghana Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR).
The LIFE project is centred on integrating people with disabilities into the Feok festival,
which is an annual celebration in the Builsa District commemorating the Builsa people’s
victory over slave-raiders in the 18th Century and a time of thanksgiving to the Gods for a
successful harvest. A research project investigating attitudes and opinions of the Builsa
people towards the Feok festival and the inclusion of people with disabilities has been
conducted. It was found that many people in the district wish for the festival to be
restructured, and be more inclusive of all communities including people with disabilities.
