Inclusion

There are an estimated one billion disabled people worldwide, 80% of whom live in developing countries. Disabled people are commonly the poorest of the poor in society, experiencing social exclusion and discrimination at all levels.

Inclusion

Although many people with disabilities have limited access to healthcare, education, employment, transport and leisure activities, their needs are rarely taken into account.

HI works with people with disabilities, their families, their communities and a range of organisations for a truly inclusive world where people with disabilities have equal opportunities and rights. We work with disabled people to promote inclusion in education, sport and cultural activities, access to employment, and lobbying governments to ensure equal opportunities for people with disabilities.

Inclusive education

Worldwide, more than 32 million disabled children don’t go to school. These children are denied their fundamental right to learn, just because they have a disability.

At HI, we believe that every child has the right to a quality inclusive education. Our work on inclusive education focuses particularly on children with disabilities - the most vulnerable and excluded young learners in the world, concentrating on low-income countries in both development and emergency contexts. Ensuring that all children and young adults with disabilities have access to school is a priority.

With your help, we can ensure that more children with disabilities are included in school. Find out how you can support our global #school4all campaign.

Rehabilitation

Humanity & Inclusion knows from experience that an artificial limb alone doesn’t change the life of an amputee. Our approach to rehabilitation is based on the recognition of individual needs, taking into account a person’s individual situation, their environment and the local services available.

Health and prevention

Good health is an essential part of a person's wellbeing and independence. Whether improving access to local health services, working to prevent the causes of disability, or providing psychological support to the survivors of violence and war, all HI's actions serve one purpose: to ensure that everyone, including disabled people, has equal access to information, health services and care.
