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.

Hygiene Kits

Providing hygiene and sanitation kits to give girls with disabilities the dignity they deserve.

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.
