Our actions

Since 2008, Humanity & Inclusion had been working to include children with disabilities in the Liberian education system. HI worked with institutional stakeholders to develop inclusive educational policies. In addition, support was provided to the families of children with disabilities and teachers were trained in strategies designed to support their learning. Humanity & Inclusion also ran a specific project for vulnerable boys and girls without access to primary education.

Humanity & Inclusion has ceased its activities in Libéria since 2018.
