Challenge

It is reported that about 97% of persons with disabilities do not enroll in primary and secondary schools due to the negative attitude of the community for persons with disabilities. Even those 3% attending education have no access for assistive technologies like special need education equipment and materials and suffer from basic food shortage because of extreme poverty. Teachers for special need education classes have very low skill in sign language and braille system.

Solution

We provide support to children with disability in terms of special need education equipment and materials as well as school feed so that we will minimize the number of school dropouts. We also provide reproductive health and life skill training for students with disabilities to alleviate the problems related to reproductive health disorders in adolescent girls with disabilities. We facilitate training on sign language and braille system for special need education teachers.

Long-Term Impact

Education is a key input to alleviate poverty in poor countries like Ethiopia. This project will provide special need education materials support and school feeding to children with disabilities. This will enable children with disabilities to escape from absolute poverty.
