Using the child centered approach, we support over 25 Partner organizations (POS) to address the education needs of children with disabilities (CWD). In this light, we strive to provide extra assistance, specialized equipment, audio and other relevant devices, subsidize school fees, Braille and sign language to enable CWDs learn in inclusive schools.
Also, we remove barriers in the educational environment of our beneficiaries; This we do by supporting POs to invest in activities/projects such as: infrastructural modifications, education and sensitization and capacity building of various stakeholders.
Inclusive education initiative, transforming education for children with disabilities
Every year, we support an average of 1500 CWDs in the education component.. Since inception, thousands of children with disabilities have been supported to access education in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions in mainstream and specialized settings. Through advocacy and trainings at various levels, EDID strengthens education stakeholders to promote inclusive education at their different levels.
