Bridging Disability and Development
We promote rights-based education for Children and Young People with Disabilities through Inclusive Education. This is done through addressing family, school, policy and child related barriers to participation in education. At family level, we support interventions that help create resilience to enable the child keep in school. At school we support development of inclusive practices that contribute to a child friendly environment for all children regardless of their backgrounds. At policy level, we work to increase engagement with policy makers to support implementation of education policies that contribute to increase in participation of children with disabilities in school. At child level, we help rehabilitate and empower children to prepare them to be in school while building their esteem to co-exist with other children without disabilities in the same school.
All-in, All Learning Project is implemented in Amolatar District. The project aims to improve access to inclusive pre-school education, retention, learning and transition by children with disabilities into primary education as a step to realize their future education prospects. The project will directly support 300 CWDs in the district through direct education support, capacity building of stakeholders, nutrition. The project will, in addition build capacities of service providers to understand issues of disability and development to enable them positively respond to the learning needs of Children with Disabilities.
