Challenge

The community is affected with discrimination, inequality and bad governance.To put an end to these social norms depends on the integration of children with disability in education and lifelong learning. Taia Development Programme (TDP) will provide tuition fees, School bags, text books, school uniforms, pens, pencil, mathematical sets for disabled children to gain primary education as their child rights. The children with disability will feel cared for by their communities in which they live.

Solution

Providing education for children with disability is a major source to end discrimination against children in rural communities in Sierra Leone. Discrimination and marginalization against children with disability nullifies, undermines, discourages and disenchant the full realization of their child rights enshrined in the convention on the rights of a child (CRC). This project is to provide tuition fees, text books, school bags, pens and pencils for disabled children in Sierra leone.

Long-Term Impact

Education is an effective tool to access the job market and break inter generational circle of poverty in all communities. The integration into development actions of 100 disabled can not be achieved without quality education support. This project will provide education support for 100 children with disability for self-reliance, food security, good governance and equality for every person to enjoy democratic society..
