The Inclusion Champions’ Handbook

Inclusion champions are experienced and qualified teachers who have been selected to participate in a three-year project to promote inclusion in schools in the Bombali District in Sierra Leone.

This handbook has been designed to help inclusion champions understand how to do their job well. The handbook contains information, ideas and materials to help them to carry out this important new role.

The project is funded by the European Union and is being implemented by Sightsavers, CEFORD (Community Empowerment For Rural Development) and the Department of Inclusion and Special Needs Educational Needs (ISNE) at The University of Makeni (UNIMAK). Published: October 2017.
