Supporting Disabled People’s Organizations (DPOs)
Reducing poverty among disabled people and their families
Promoting appropriate and low-cost assistive devices and physical rehabilitation
Facilitating South-to-South and regional exchange of information and skills


Our vision

Our vision is a society where disabled women, men, boys and girls – and the most vulnerable and marginalized people – have equal social, economic and civil rights.

Inclusion is at the heart of everything we do, so disabled and vulnerable people can engage and lead initiatives for change and equality of opportunity.

We focus on the needs of vulnerable children and adults, and carers of disabled people, including disabilities that are not so obvious such as deafness and mental illness.

Our approach to partnership is responsive and flexible: we work with our partners to translate ideas into tangible and effective programmes.



Working in partnership is our dedicated priority. Run by and for disabled people, our local partners are best placed to understand their needs and challenges.

We play an essential practical role for our partners in countries such as Ethiopia, Mozambique and Nepal: supporting, developing and realizing projects, raising funds, building capacities in project and financial management, ensuring that objectives are met, and facilitating south-to-south exchanges of experience.

As they work towards a sustainable future, many of our partner organizations have used our partnership as a springboard to funding, independence and success
