What we achieve

We not only reach children, but also parents carers, teachers and policy-makers

Projects and programmes

For children with disabilities to participate in society, more than only direct child support is required. That is why we invest in knowledge and awareness about children and youngsters with a disability in local communities; to establish an enabling environment and an inclusive society in which they can fully participate. That way, not only children and young people with disabilities, but many more people benefit from our programmes and projects.

We aim to ensure support with lasting effects on childrens lives. We do that within our own programmes and in projects with other (inter-)national organisations and research institutes.

Current projects; what are we working on

To achieve structural improvement, we encourage policy changes in the areas of care, education, employment and income. We do this with our network of local partners and in association with other organisations that focus on fair chances for people with disabilities.
