What we do

We are an ally to the global disability movement.

The movement for disability equality is powered by the drive, vision and courage of disability activists.

Often disabled themselves, they have the passion to fight for change.

It’s their lives and their communities at stake. What they often need are the tools and resources to run effective organisations. That’s where ADD International comes in.

1. Listen

Our work begins as a conversation. Disability activists tell us the change they want to make and what they need to make it happen.

3. Building movements

We help organisations of disability activists build links with each other and build movements with unstoppable momentum.

See our work in action.

Millions of disabled people in Africa and Asia are still condemned to a life of poverty and exclusion. Right now, organisations of disability activists are working to fight discrimination and ensure every disabled person gets a fighting chance at living their best life.
