Support the next generation of disability activists.

You can help build a world where young disabled people can lead change.

Following a global pandemic, and subsequent economic shock, the young disability activists that we support in Africa and Asia are struggling to access the opportunities they need. Now more than ever, we must give young disabled people a stronger voice to break the cycle of poverty and inequality.

You can read the stories of Aneth and Joseph, who thanks to support from ADD, have gone on to create positive social change in their communities.

With your support today, we can help develop the leadership skills of the brightest young disability activists in the countries where we work.


How it works

Starting in Tanzania, we are currently recruiting young activist interns who will be supported over the next six months to develop their leadership capacities and creativity and explore the future direction of their activism. They will:

Can you help young disabled people break the cycle of inequality?

Young disabled people have so much to contribute - they are the ones that can speak up on behalf of future generations - but are often made to feel
that their views and skills don’t count.

We want to support young activists, like Aneth and Joseph, to make change from the grassroots to the global.
