ADD International partners with organisations of disability activists in Africa and Asia. They help them access the tools, resources and support they need to build powerful movements for change.
Disability has its own stigma present in every society but in parts of Africa and Asia discrimination towards disabled people can be particularly oppressive. Disabled people are often considered weak, worthless and in some cases subhuman by their societies. Right now, organisations of disability activists are working to fight discrimination and ensure every disabled person gets a fighting chance at living their best life. Learn more about how they support their work, and get in touch
with any questions and feedback.
