We want to see a world in which all disabled children are able to achieve their full potential and fully participate in the world around them. In order to achieve this we support partner organisations in Africa to carry out
life changing work with disabled children and young people and work alongside them to use their experiences and learning to campaign for more widespread change in attitudes and practice.
We provide our partners with a range of support including money, advice,learning opportunities and support with systems and communication development.
We are currently working with 5 partner organisations in Uganda, Kenya and
• In Uganda we work with USDC
• In Kenya we work with ANDY and Little Rock
• In Tanzania we work with ICD and Child Support Tanzania
To promote and facilitate the participation of young disabled people in all aspects of development in Africa.
We take a rights-based approach. Our commitment to the rights of disabled children and young people sends a clear message that their rights cannot be denied any longer.
Equality, honesty and respect are key to our work. We seek to ensure the full participation of groups who have faced discrimination because of their disability, gender or their national, local or self-defined identity.
We believe in the full participation of children and their families. Our partners are committed to fully listening to and involving children and families. We also encourage our partners to ensure their staff and volunteers
are representative of the communities which they serve.
We aim to build positive and strong partnerships. We support partner organisations to identify their own objectives and help them to find the resources to achieve them. We believe in a local response to a local problem
and are committed to the growth of strong, sustainable local organisations.
