Disabled children have the same right to an education, to learn, to a future, as everyone else.
Yet the journey to make sure every disabled child in Sudan gets a quality education is long.
In Sudan, the vast majority of disabled children, particularly girls, do not attend school. Disabled children encounter discrimination from schools, their families, and communities, mainly because of misconceptions about disability, and can face a lifetime hidden away at home. At this pivotal moment in Sudan’s history, it is vital that children with disabilities don’t get left behind and inclusive education becomes a priority.
HOW WE CREATE CHANGE
At ADD International, we understand it’s not just about getting individual children in to school. That's why we're working in Sudan to permanently change the attitudes, and dismantle the barriers, that keep disabled children excluded in the first place. Our ‘My Right to a Future’ appeal aims to raise £60,000 to make this work possible.
See our work in action.
Our inclusive education work in Tanzania has come a long was since it first started back in 2012. See how the success of this project has helped shape our inclusive education work in Sudan so that more children with disabilities can get the education they're entitled to.
OUR AIMS FOR SUDAN
Our work in Tanzania has proven that societies can, and do, change. Now, we're expanding this work to Sudan. Over the next 4 years, we will work in 3 regions on Eastern Sudan to strenghten organisations of disability activists and help more disabled children into school.
We urgently need your support
We urgently need to raise £60,000 to make this work possible. Every pound donated to our My Right to a Future appeal by the end of 2019 will be doubled meaning your gift will have twice the impact.
This Winter, with your support, we can take a significant step towards a future where every disabled child in Sudan gets the education they deserve.
All donations made towards our My Right to a Future appeal will be matched, meaning your gift can go twice as far!
We have a range of fundraising ideas and challenges to suit every business and by partnering with us, you can use your voice and profile to help raise the voices of disability activists globally.
Proceeds from our packs of Christmas cards will go towards our My Right to a Future appeal and will be matched.
