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.
HOW WE SUPPORT ACTIVISTS IN 3 STEPS
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.
Watch their work in action.
OUR KEY FOCUSES
Around one in five women worldwide has a disability. For disabled women, gender-based violence and disability discrimination intersect to create brutal barriers to well-being.
Every disabled person in the world should have a fighting chance at living their best life but that is almost impossible without going to school.
Everyone has the right to make the best of the life they are born into: for most of us that means getting a job and earning a living so we can live independently and support our families.
