There are estimated to be 29 million children in East and Southern Africa living with a disability.

They are four times more likely to experience physical violence or sexual assault, and twice as likely to never attend school. Of those lucky enough to start school, most drop out after a few months due to feelings of exclusion or stigma.

They are being forgotten, hidden and left behind.

Able Child exists to change this.
