80% Of all children with a disability live in the poorest parts of the world. Poverty is the primary cause of disability, and conversely, disability leads to more extreme poverty. It is a vicious circle. The Liliane Foundation breaks this vicious circle by empowering children with a disability and their parents.
Together with our local partner organisations in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, we make these children’s living, playing, and learning environment more accessible so they can participate in their communities to the best of their abilities. We work towards an inclusive society in which all children and young people can participate, regardless of their disability. The Liliane Foundation believes participation is not a privilege – it is a right.
