Making development and humanitarian assistance more inclusive of people with disabilities
With current and historical political unrest, natural disasters, and poverty, people with disabilities are the fastest growing marginalized community in the world. Yet, they are consistently excluded from critical humanitarian and development efforts, such as disaster relief, livelihood training, education, violence prevention, and health programs. People with disabilities are powerful leaders influencing national policies, advocating for changes, organizing regional alliances and increasing their participation in mainstream development projects that directly impact their lives. Engage disabled leaders in your efforts.
