Denied a voice: denied a future.
In Bangladesh, millions of disabled people face a future of poverty, dependency and exclusion. Without political voice or representation, disabled people have no opportunity to advocate for the issues affecting their lives or demand the solutions they need.
Empowering activists to claim their rights.
At ADD International we understand it’s not just about getting individual voices of disabled people heard, but about permanently dismantling the barriers that keep disabled people excluded in the first place.
That's why we’re partnering with organisations of disability activists to support 15,000 disabled people in disaster prone areas of Bangladesh, to influence powerholders and have their say in the decisions that affect their lives, from work opportunities to accessible flood shelters.
What we hope to achieve
We urgently need your support.
With your help, we want to raise enough money to support disability activists in Bangladesh to influence powerholders, from the local to the national level, to create better life opportunities for themselves and 60,000 family and community members.
Whatever you can afford to give to our 'Seat at the Table' appeal, your gift will be matched by philanthropists, meaning that we can reach twice as many disabled people!
