Ensuring the protection of children and young people with disabilities in Africa.
By supporting local families and organisations to break down the stigma and discrimination around disability, we ensure the protection and inclusion of children with disabilities within their communities.
PROJECT IN KENYA
Children with disabilities are at a higher risk of violence, abuse or exploitation. Therefore, we work with all our partners to improve and support local safeguarding practices and ensure the protection of children in the areas where we work.
We have been working in Uganda,Kenya,Tanzania, Rwanda,Malawi, and Zambia to ensure the protection of children with disabilities within their communities. Over the last five years...
We have worked with other organisations in the sector to train 232 practitioners on disability-inclusive child safeguarding.
Working with parents to help them better protect their children with disabilities.
We have informed 8,979 children with disabilities on their rights and disability-inclusive child protection.
How you can make a difference
1 in 10 girls do not attend school because of the lack of basic sanitation and hygiene support. This impact is worsened for girls with disabilities. It only costs £5 to provide a basic hygiene kit to a child. £100 will allow us to train a mentor to support a number of young girls and provide the essential guidance to keep them safe and in school.
