Whether it's working directly with disability activists or influencing governments, we always have one goal in mind: creating independence, equality and opportunity for disabled people living in poverty.
Working with local groups of disability activists (also called Disabled People’s Organisations or DPOs) ensures that our work is a true reflection of the real needs of disabled people. Read more about how we work in partnership.
Our ongoing projects involve the work that we do worldwide, persuading governments, development organisations and the private sector to include the needs of disabled people in their policies and services.
Our two main ongoing projects in Sudan, as well as in the other countries we work in, are:
This is where we work directly with activists on a local as well as national level, to strengthen their organisations and to teach communities that disability is not inability.
- Supporting Disabled women to advocate for their rights*.
- School for all: Inclusive Education for disabled children.
- Building stronger disability rights organisations.
Past projects have come to an end. We are a ‘learning organisation’, which means that we always reflect on the successes and failures of our work. We speak to the activists and organisations we have worked with and we take their feedback on board so that we can improve our approach in future projects.
*We are working hard to populate our website with all of our current and past projects. Soon you will able to read these projects in full. In the meanwhile, please feel free to contact us if you have queries.
