Summary

The numbers of children with disabilities in schools have increased as well as numbers of schools. This will keep rising.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Children with special needs are often negated or neglected apart from the few privileged that are found in the generally under-furnished and staffed special schools. The challenges of inclusive education being faced by children with special needs include: i.Non enforcement of section 56 of National Policy on Education by Federal and State Ministries ii.Regular schools and teachers have little or no information, instructional guidelines or materials on how to handle and instruct children

How will this project solve this problem?

CYDI is involved in advocacy for inclusive policies and programs especially in the sector. This will increase academic, social interactions, and behavior skills of children with disabilities. Inclusive education should afford children greater access to general curriculum, staff collaboration, parent participation and integrate familiesand children with disabilities into community.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will educate 100 children with disabilities giving them the opportunity to acquire formal education in an inclusive manner. They will learn skills to prepare them for responsibilities as adults, the rules that govern our communities and our nations. They will also make friends to last a lifetime. Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights guarantees "the right to education directed to the full development of the human personality.
