How to apply

Disability rights.
It's what we're all about.

ADD International is a disability rights organisation. We fight for independence, equality and opportunity for disabled people living in poverty in Africa and Asia.

We were born in 1986, and for 30 years we have been supporting remarkable disability activists and their organisations to ensure no one is left behind.

Watch how far we've come in 30 years:


Disability. The next hot topic.

One billion people worldwide are disabled. 80% of them live in the developing world.

For decades, disabled people have been left behind by international development programmes. But with disability widely represented in the new Sustainable Development Goals things are about to shift. 

We are based in the UK, but we also work out of five offices, with a staff team of approximately one hundred people.
