At Disability Africa, we try to think things through before we act. We do get emotional sometimes, but we try never to let that guide our strategy.
Only 2% of disabled children in Africa are attending school. This clearly isn't good enough. But what is inclusive education? Well, it's about much more than just being in the same room. We need to consider the complex reasons why disabled children are denied their right to a quality education and adopt a child-centred approach which looks beyond simple statistics.
‘Changing children’s lives’ isn’t just a catchy slogan.
