In many parts of the developing world, only two per cent of children with disabilities have access to education. Through our education programme, we have supported over 10,000 disabled children in Africa and Asia to receive a quality education.

The focus of our education programme is on supporting disabled children to attend their local schools, in a process known as ‘Inclusive education’. Inclusive education means disabled children being taught in the same classroom alongside non-disabled children. Teaching methods, resources and the school environment are designed so that all children can learn together. Find out more about inclusive education.
We currently run education projects in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Philippines, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
