How to build RAMPS for home accessibility

This is an index to a 66 page document on how to build ramps for home accessibility. This approach builds on the strengths of the community, involves volunteers, ensures quality and safety, and can be adapted to an individual's situation. One of the most notable characteristics of the design is the modular system which allows the ramp to be reused time and again. The ramp design presented in this manual is an effective, low-cost solution to meet the access needs of persons with disabilities.

Disability is part of the natural diversity of human life. It touches all of us, whether through our own individual experience or that of a family member, neighbor, friend or colleague. As such, we all have a role in—and benefit to gain from—advancing equality for people with disabilities in all sectors of society, including the workplace.
