Put us in the Picture: the global change we seek

October 2017

Put Us in the Picture, Sightsavers’ policy campaign, aims to deliver development policy that is inclusive of people with disabilities.

Over the past two years we have been working with the UK government, Sightsavers supporters and political parties to realise this ambitious aim.

Our vision is the full inclusion and active participation of the one billion people worldwide living with a disability. Our ambition is high. Put Us in the Picture aims to deliver an enabling environment that fosters ability, opportunity and dignity for all.

It’s a big task, but delivering disability-inclusive development is a moral imperative.
