Education for 400 disabled children in Tanzania

by EdUKaid

Summary

There are many barriers which prevent children with a disability from accessing even a basic primary education - currently 95% are without any education. These include inaccessible physical environments, poorly resourced, over crowded schools, a lack of teacher training, dangerous myths and entrenched beliefs. Our Inclusive Education Programme seeks to address these barriers and provide an opportunity for children to thrive whilst showing local communities that disability is not inability.

Challenge

Only 5% of children living with a disability in rural Mtwara are attending school - for those who do enroll, regular attendance is often difficult due to the lack of teaching support in large class sizes and the challenging physical environment. Teachers are often reluctant to work with disabled children as they do not understand their learning needs and lack the skills to support disabled children to learn.

Solution

Our Inclusive Education programme provides a holistic solution to meet the challenges experienced by disabled children tackling practical issues such as training, access and adaptations at the same time as dispelling myths and challenging entrenched, harmful, cultural beliefs.

Long-Term Impact

Working across 16 of the most remote primary schools we will improve access to education for a minimum of 400 children giving them the opportunity to learn alongside their peers and the chance of a better future.
