Framing Perceptions

In September 2015, world leaders agreed ambitious global goals for the next 15 years that will affect us all. For far too long people with disabilities living in developing countries have been excluded when it comes to the fight against global poverty, but inclusion in these new goals will mean they’re able to not only access services and claim rights the rest of us take for granted, but also contribute to their communities and their national economies, and that’ll have positive knock-on effects for the whole world.

The stories in Framing Perceptions, Sightsavers’ exhibition featuring portraits by Guardian photographer Graeme Robertson, show the incredible impact empowerment and inclusion can have, as well as the devastating effects of continued exclusion.
