Our actions

Since 2009, Humanity & Inclusion, in partnership with Hope Disability Center, had worked to improve the quality of rehabilitation services for people with disabilities living in areas affected by conflict in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.

In conjunction with HELP Foundation, Humanity & Inclusion also helped reduce the risk of accidents involving mines and explosive remnants of war by providing awareness-raising sessions, training volunteers and distributing educational material, and more.

Humanity & Inclusion was also helping to champion the rights of people with disabilities in Jammu and Kashmir and to heighten awareness of their needs. This was achieved by providing support to disabled people’s organisations to perform awareness-raising and advocacy work on these issues.

Humanity & Inclusion is not currently conducting any projects in India.
