Being part of the groupThe Liliane Foundation supports local partner organisations in reducing the barriers to social participation of children and youngsters with disabilities.

Raising awareness and challenging the attitudes of family and community members by highlighting the talents and skills of children and youngsters with disabilities can reshape and develop whole communities.

Improving the infrastructure and the means of communication available to community centres, sporting and artistic venues can increase the participation of the children considerably.

Examples are local sports grounds that are equipped for blind children and local theatres that have spaces at the front for wheelchairs.

Furthermore, raising the awareness of the national and local authorities can also stimulate partner organisations to work on disability inclusive laws and their effective implementation.
