About the Power of Disability Inclusion sessions

DCDD organises a series of learning sessions on disability inclusion called 'Power of Disability Inclusion', as part of the We Are Able! programme, funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. During the series, we share tools for disability inclusive programming, facilitate in-country connections and exchange experiences on inclusive advocacy. The specific learning agenda is developed based on inputs from all participants.
FOR WHO? For Civil Society organisations that receive funding from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. DCDD network participants are also welcome to join. 
WHY? An important part of strengthening civil society is making space for and amplifying the voices of persons with disabilities to be heard in society as well as in the design of development programmes. In collaboration with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we facilitate spaces for CSO partners to get together, exchange and explore the most effective ways to make disability inclusion happen.
