Empowering Disability Activists.

We work in 5 countries across Africa and Asia, supporting disability activists to create independence and opportunity for thousands of disabled people.

Millions of disabled people face a life of poverty and exclusion.

Right now, we are supporting disability activists working to tackle discrimination and ensure every disabled person gets a fighting chance at living their best life

SUPPORTING ACTIVISTS IN 3 STEPS.

1. LISTEN

Our work begins as a conversation. Disability activists tell us the change they want to make and what they need to make it happen.

2. TAILORED SUPPORT

Together we develop a package of long term support to help activists access the tools and resources they need to make change happen.

3. BUILDING MOVEMENTS

We help organisations of disability activists build links with each other and build movements with unstoppable momentum.
