Today we launched our 2030 Strategy alongside the Able Child Africa Network

Following an extensive 18-month consultation and review process, we have developed a new way forward. A direction that creates an organisation which is fit for purpose, that builds a model aligned with the interests of our current partners in Africa, and ensures we are best placed to achieve our vision of ensuring no child with a disability is left behind.

The result is the launch of a new network of African founded organisations, working with and for children and young people with disabilities, where the members take the lead.

This network will bring together the combined expertise of its membership to shape the landscape of what works for children with disabilities in policy and programming. It will create a platform for joint action and amplify the voices of these organisations to affect change on the international stage.

Watch our launch event again here.

The event includes an introduction from our co-CEOs Karl Hankinson and Lauren Watters, statements from Jim Sellars, Chair of the UK Board, and Bahati Omar, Chair of the newly formed Able Child Africa Network, alongside a panel discussion with a number of Able Child Africa Network Members including Action Network for Disabled Youth, Child Support Tanzania and the Federation of Disability Organisation in Malawi.

There is live captioning and British Sign Language interpretation in this event. If you have any questions or comments around the strategy, the network or what we do, please email us at
