Governance

c_AVincens-de-Tapol_Handicap-International_governance.jpgHandicap International works to increase the participation of people with disabilities in local governance, and to encourage local authorities to take the rights of people with disabilities into consideration when planning and implementing development projects. The organization also empowers local disabled people’s organizations to advocate for their rights.

Strengthening local disabled people’s organizations is often the first step in inclusive governance. By teaching people with disabilities how to organize, understand their rights, and gain the acceptance of local authorities, they have the opportunity to successfully advocate for positive change.
