Community Action for People with Disabilities in Africa (CAPDA) is a secular Australian aid and development organisation established in 2010.
Founded by professionals with experience in health services, administration and education, CAPDA aims to bring about sustainable improvements in the quality of life for people with disabilities in Africa.
