“Only 10% of all children with disabilities are in school,
and… only half who begin, actually complete their primary education.
This [means] that only 5% of all children with disabilities
worldwide have completed primary school.”
Children with disabilities have the right to education without discrimination. Nevertheless, many remain excluded from equal access to schooling. This means they also miss out on many of the benefits that follow, including better jobs, social and economic security, and opportunities for full participation in society.
Kupenda works with parents, leaders and communities to support children with disabilities in accessing high-quality education, tailored to their unique physical and learning needs. In addition to their personal gains, children with disabilities who succeed academically show their peers and communities what is possible when they have access to the education they need deserve.
