Able Child
Africa Network

We are a network of African organizations who share a vision of a world in which
no child with a disability is left behind.

We are organizations who were founded in Africa and are based in Africa, and who work specifically on improving the lives of children with disabilities.

A strong and resilient civil society.

What we do

Stand Up for Rights

We stand up for the rights of children with disabilities, amplifying their voices and creating change by influencing governments and other international allies.

Deliver High Quality Programs

We deliver high-quality programs and building best practice in inclusive programming for children with disabilities.

Generate Data

We work together to collate data on the barriers children with disabilities experience and generate evidence for what works in inclusive programming.

How we work

We are stronger together.

The network provides access to a wealth of knowledge to its members, both technical and operational, where like-minded organizations share expertise and build best practice.

Network members come together to play a leading role supporting disability movements and other organizations of persons with disabilities in their respective countries, working to improve services, hold their governments to account and deliver lasting change for children with disabilities.

Our journey

Where we operate

We work across East and Southern Africa at present. In order to be a fully representative African network, we want to broaden our reach across the continent.
