ADD (Action on Disability and Development) International

Development agency working with disabled people in Africa & Asia

Aims:

ADD’s vision is of a world where all disabled people are able to enjoy their rights, fulfil their responsibilities and obligations and participate as fully as they choose at every level of society.
ADD supports organisations of disabled people in Africa and Asia to influence policy and practice to end social exclusion and poverty.

Services provided:

  • Encourages the formation of self-help groups of disabled people and supports development projects run by such groups. These include transport, personal mobility, education, training, work and income generation projects
  • Also encourages disabled people’s organisations to campaign at all levels for fuller inclusion of disabled people and better recognition of their rights
  • Lobbies in its own right, seeking to convince policy makers and major funders in the UK of the need to include disabled people in all their overseas work.
