In consultation with partner organisations, Puspadi Bali helps to facilitate access to education for children with physical disabilities.
Every child has the right to an education, however children with disabilities have less access to education than others. According to UNESCO, “of the 75 million children of primary school age who are out of school, one-third represents children with disabilities.
- informs families with disabled children that they have a right to access educational opportunities
- provides assistive devices to enable their inclusion in education
- provides recommendations and practical assistance to make school environments physically accessible
- facilitates referrals for primary and high school sponsorship, university scholarships, vocational scholarships and guidance, leadership development and advocacy
Without an education children with disabilities have very limited, low-paying and often dangerous work options.
