Our work in action.
Meet Peter an albinism activist in Uganda. His story explains how we partner disabiltiy activists to build effective organisations.
To ensure all disabled people have a fighting chance at living their best life, the stigma and discrimination that oppresses them must be transformed.
Changing attitudes is lengthy and relentless work. It requires a strong team of courageous people with a bold vision for change. That’s why the movement for disability equality is powered by the passion, vision and courage of disability activists. Often disabled themselves, they have the passion to fight for change. It’s their lives and their communities at stake. What they often need are the tools and resources to run effective organisations.
That’s where ADD International comes in. We partner with activists to help them access the tools, resources and support they need to build powerful movements for change.
Our work begins as a conversation. Disability activists tell us the change they want to make and what they need to make it happen.
Together we develop a tailored package of long term support to help activists access the tools, skills and resources they need to make change happen.
We help organsiations of disability activists build links with each other and powerholders to tackle barriers to disability inclusion in ways that don’t just win individual changes, but build movements with unstoppable momentum.
Millions of disabled people in Africa and Asia are still condemned to a life of poverty and exclusion. Right now, organisations of disability activists like Peter are working to fight discrimination and ensure every disabled person gets a fighting chance at living their best life. They urgently need your support.
