Our four campaign calls

We have a strategy focusing on four main areas to help defeat poverty and inequality for people with disabilities.

Leadership

We lobby politicians, governments and international organisations like the World Bank to keep disability-inclusive development on the global agenda.

Voice

We want to make sure people with disabilities in developing countries are heard, and share their stories as widely as possible.

Rights

We call for the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities to be upheld (this states that people with disabilities should have the same rights and freedoms as everyone else).

Data

We highlight the need for stronger data on disability, so that support can be directed where it’s needed. Current global data is inconsistent (although work is already in progress to change this).
