Breaking down Barriers

Research and capacity building for disability inclusion

Academics and civil society organisations join hands

We dream of an inclusive society in which children and young people with a disability fully participate. That is why we support academic research that shows how to bring about real change for children with a disability.

A good example of such a project is ‘Breaking down Barriers’, initiated by the Liliane Foundation and Radboud University Nijmegen. Its goal is to improve the quality and effectiveness of programmes concerning children with a disability. Breaking down Barriers takes place in the next four years, during which One Family People in Sierra Leone, The Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Services and Cheshire Homes Society of Zambia, and academic partners from these countries join us in conducting this research.
