ABOUT ADD INTERNATIONAL.
ADD International (formerly known as Action on Disability and Development) is a disability rights organisation with 30 years of experience. We fight for independence, equality and opportunity for disabled people living in poverty in Africa and Asia.
Whether it is visual, hearing or mobility impairments, neurological conditions, intellectual disabilities, albinism or more, we believe it is not the impairment, but the barriers in society, that limit people from reaching their full potential.
We work in areas of extreme poverty alongside disabled people’s organisations (DPOs) run by disability activists at a local and national level, supporting them with the tools and resources to build powerful movements for change. In this sense, we’re an ally to the disability movement.
We currently work in five countries across Africa and Asia: Bangladesh, Cambodia, Uganda, Tanzania and Sudan.
YOUR ROLE: POLICY AND INFUENCING AT ADD
MAIN AREAS OF WORK
DFID have developed a disability framework, but it is not yet being implemented at all levels. UNDP has done an evaluation of their disability inclusion and made recommendations, but these now need to be implemented. We will work with DFID and UNDP to improve the inclusion of disability in their work, in line with the DFID Disability Framework and UNDP response to the evaluation of disability inclusive development. We will work to make progress towards meeting the disability specific targets of the 2030 agenda in three priority areas: voice and participation of people with disabilities, economic empowerment and violence against women with disabilities.
