Education resources

We want to ensure children with disabilities have the best start in life and a chance to go to school  alongside their peers.

We work with local and national partners in our programme countries to promote inclusive, quality education, giving all children the chance to go to school.

Through our learning, and work with our partners and communities, we have published the reports, guides and videos below.
