We launched our partnership in Malawi in 2020 to continue our mission to improve the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable children.

52% of all people in Malawi live in poverty, and 1 in 5 have a disability. Most children with disabilities drop out of school due to the stigma and discrimination they face on a daily basis. We are trying to change this.

Our plans

FEDOMA are imbedded within the national policy environment and are regularly consulted on high level policy, budgetary and implementation decisions that concern people with disabilities. Able Child Africa will work with FEDOMA to strengthen their authority with these change makers, ensuring that they and their members are seen as the technical lead on how best to include children with disabilities within a Malawian context. FEDOMA are interested in delivering work in the areas of inclusive justice, social protection for children with disabilities and projects focused on the economic empowerment of young people with disabilities alongside rolling out our current work together on inclusive early childhood education (ECD).

FUTURE PLANS
