The right to be heard.

We support children and young people with disabilities to be confident and resilient, amplifying their voice to demand their own inclusion.

Rights Clubs Created
We have set up 106 disability-inclusive child rights clubs to enable children to fight for their rights.


Children Informed
We have informed 8,979 children with disabilities on their rights and disability-inclusive child protection.


Youth Empowered
We have trained 114 young people with disabilities to better advocate for the inclusion of children and young people with disabilties.

But every child has the right to feel safe, the right to go to school,
and the right to be heard.
