#school4all: Help us include disabled children in school

Worldwide, more than 32 million disabled children don’t go to school. These children are denied their fundamental right to learn, just because they have a disability. At HI, we believe that every child has the right to a quality inclusive education. That’s why we have launched our global #School4All and #TeacherKids campaigns to raise awareness and win support for this major cause.

#TeacherKids

With support from footballer Neymar Jr., our new #TeacherKids initiative aims to show that children with disabilities have talents to share and why it’s vital to help them access school and build a future for themselves. Find out more at teacherkids.org

Channa could easily have missed out on school...

...but we worked to make sure she was included.

Now she has a bright future ahead of her!

 

#school4all

Most of us take for granted our right to go to school.

But worldwide, more than 32 million disabled children like Channa don’t go to school.

These children are denied their fundamental right to learn, just because they have a disability.

At HI, we believe that every child has the right to an education. That’s why we have launched our global  #school4all  campaign.

With your help, we can ensure that more children with disabilities are included in school.

Please make a donation today to help us include more children with disabilities in school.

And share the campaign on social media to show that you care about disabled children’s right to education!
