Capacity Building for Inclusive Higher Education and Students with Disabilities

WHAT: The project supports inclusive education opportunities for students with disabilities in the Ethiopian universities.

WHY: University education is not inclusive due the lack of teaching aids, sign language interpreters and accessible teaching facilities.

HOW: The project provides assistive devices for the students so they can study at the universities. Inclusive events are organized for the students with and without disabilities in order improve attitudes towards disability. The project also provides training to university management and staff in order for the universities to better provide inclusive education. The project benefits students with disabilities who can take part in the more inclusive education.

PARTNER ORGANISATION: The project is implemented by Ethiopian Center for Disability and Development (ECDD).
