We work with local partners to protect, educate and empower

children with disabilities so they are able to fulfil their potential.


As the leading charity working solely to improve the lives of children with disabilities in Africa, this is how Able Child Africa makes a change.

Delivering High Quality Programmes

We deliver high-quality programmes alongside local partners that break down the barriers to inclusion for children with disabilities.

Strengthening Local Organisations

We strengthen local organisations on the ground that ensures they can deliver lasting change in the countries where we work.

Fighting for Change

We fight for the rights of children with disabilities, creating change on a national scale by influencing governments and other agencies.

We help build the capacity of local organisations on the ground to ensure they can deliver lasting change in the countries where we work.

We firmly believe in local-led solutions to local challenges and are committed to a long-term partnership approach. Alongside our delivery of services, we play a key role in strengthening local partners and supporting their organisational development so that they can become independently sustainable. We commit to working with all our partners over a sustained period of time, to ensure our support is aligned to their own strategic priorities. This way we ensure that our impact is maximised and local organisations are equipped to reach the numbers of children with disabilities in need of support.
