In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has shone a light on the huge inequalities already faced by children with disabilities in terms of access to quality education. Children with disabilities have been particularly affected by school closures, both in terms of learning and also to access services that are often available through schools (nutrition, social protection, access to healthcare or psychosocial support).
Sadly, this is nothing new. For many years, children with disabilities have faced barriers to access education and realize their potential.
In light of this stark reality, Humanity & Inclusion launched the advocacy report “Let’s break silos now! - Achieving disability-inclusive education in a post-COVID world” on International Childrens’ Day.
