We collaborate with several organisations in and outside the Netherlands that, each in their own way, want to help improve the lives of children and young people with a disability in Africa, Asia and Latin-America.
Over the years we have been actively working together with other development organisations to broaden our and their perspective on how to achieve an inclusive society. A selection:
- In the five-year programme (2021-2025) Make Way, we work together with Wemos, VSO, Akina Mama wa Africa, Forum for African Women Educationalists and The Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians Kenya. The programme is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The aim of the programme is to encourage an intersectional perspective of SRHR in Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia.
