How schools in Nepal are including children with disabilities
The Inclusive Futures project (a consortium of specialists and global leaders in disability and development from 23 international organisations) works to tackle inclusion issues to ensure children with disabilities, including those with multiple disabilities and other learning support needs, can go to school.
This blog highlights the story of Sandip in Nepal, who lost his leg when he was 14 years old. As Sandip’s story shows, children with disabilities can struggle to attend school. They face a number of barriers, such as not having accessible transport, facing stigma and discrimination, and not being able to access learning environments that support their specific needs.
