Schools for all

Making sure no child is denied inclusive education. Only 10% of children with disabilities worldwide are in school. Often there is no way for their parents to challenge exclusion. The law can play an important part in securing inclusion, but families often have no way to get to court. Many governments are unaware of their human rights duty to roll out a system to fight inclusion for all.

That’s why we are working with families to educate them about their rights, and give them the legal help they need to secure educational inclusion for their disabled children.

We support the global disability rights movement in their priority areas where law can play a valuable role in achieving structural change. We work on two other campaigns see these below:

We use four strategies to achieve the goals of these campaigns:

Building solidarity

We support local lawyers and NGOs by delivering training and strengthening their capacity, and help victims of human rights abuse tell their story nationally and internationally.

Promoting inclusion

We work with local, national and international bodies to ensure a human rights based approach in law and policy reform.

Securing justice

We take test cases through the courts to redefine the law.

Supporting movements

We use our legal skills to support national and international disability rights advocates.
