DISABILITY: ENSURING NO ONE IS LEFT
BEHIND
Disabled
people living in poverty are among the most vulnerable, marginalised
and discriminated people on earth. Often, they have no access to basic
human rights, education or the opportunity to work. There are
approximately 1 billion disabled people in the world according to the
World Health Organisation, 80% live in developing countries – and around
150 million have very high levels of need. Shockingly small numbers of
disabled children go to school leading to low literacy and low
employment, and, for most disabled people, even basic health services
are inaccessible. Disabled people are frequently discriminated against,
stigmatised, and excluded from wider society – even by their own
families.

After many years of relentless campaigning, we are now
beginning to see the global political will, high profile champions and
relevant policies that are needed to respect the rights of disabled
people around the world. ADD International has been at the heart of this
global movement, ensuring that the voices of disabled people grow ever
louder.

ABOUT ADD INTERNATIONAL.
For over 32 years ADD
International has been supporting some of the world’s most remarkable
disability activists working on the frontline of discrimination. We give
them and their organisations the tools and resources to build powerful
movements for change; and we make sure their voices are heard by global
leaders and people with the power to make real change. Based in the UK,
we have 5 offices in East Africa and Asia with a staff team of
approximately 100 people and a turnover of over £3m.
ADD
International in Tanzania works in partnership with the Tanzania
Federation of Disabled People’s Organizations (SHIVYAWATA), national
disabled people’s organisations (DPOs).

THE DISABILITY INCLUSIVE COVID-19 RESPONSE AND RECOVERY CO-ORDINATION (DICC) PROJECT.
The
DICC brings together Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs),
disability-focused NGOs, and other mainstream NGOs working on disability
inclusion in Tanzania. In itself, this represents an innovative
alliance between multiple DPOs and NGOs, working with a common purpose
in a crisis response, in a way that has never been seen before in
Tanzania. DICC partners have reach and representation across the
country, which will enable a grassroots and district-based
disability-inclusive COVID-19 response where PWD play a leading role
through their representative organisations.

The project
overall goal is to contribute to COVID -19 response in Tanzania that
leaves no one behind by ensuring that PWD are reached and included
equitably in efforts to raise awareness, prevent infection, access
support and mitigate the social and economic impact of the pandemic.
This will be achieved through enhanced coordination among organizations
from different sectors and government, effective planning and
implementation of inclusive COVID-19 response by Government at all
levels, improved knowledge, capacity of PWD and their households to
prevent infection and access medical, social and livelihood support, DPO
effective support to PWD during COVID-19 Pandemic/recovery period and
demonstrated evidence and learning that inform decision-making at all
levels on the impact of COVID-19 on PWD, barriers to accessing support,
and effective strategies for including PWD.
The project
will be implemented in collaboration with SHIVYAWATA covering 10
National DPOs and 9 SHIVYAWATA region offices across Tanzania.
