DISABILITY: ENSURING NO ONE IS LEFT
BEHIND
Disabled people living in poverty are among the most vulnerable, marginalised and discriminated people on earth. Often, they have no access to basic human rights, education or the opportunity to work. There are approximately 1 billion disabled people in the world according to the World Health Organisation, 80% live in developing countries – and around 150 million have very high levels of need. Shockingly small numbers of disabled children go to school leading to low literacy and low employment, and, for most disabled people, even basic health services are inaccessible. Disabled people are frequently discriminated against, stigmatised, and excluded from wider society – even by their own families.
After many years of relentless campaigning, we are now beginning to see the global political will, high profile champions and relevant policies that are needed to respect the rights of disabled people around the world. ADD International has been at the heart of this global movement, ensuring that the voices of disabled people grow ever louder.
ABOUT ADD INTERNATIONAL.
For over 32 years ADD International has been supporting some of the world’s most remarkable disability activists working on the frontline of discrimination. We give them and their organisations the tools and resources to build powerful movements for change; and we make sure their voices are heard by global leaders and people with the power to make real change. Based in the UK, we have 5 offices in East Africa and Asia with a staff team of approximately 100 people and a turnover of over £3m.
ADD International in Tanzania works in partnership with the Tanzania Federation of Disabled People’s Organizations (SHIVYAWATA), national disabled people’s organisations (DPOs).
