The project aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for children with disabilities through a comprehensive approach. It encompasses components that target further encouraging the inclusion of children with disabilities in the mainstream education system; as well as enhancing the mainstream education environment to improve access by children with disabilities to schools and enhance their performance in education settings. To this end, the project will address the main barriers: physical access to schools and the attitudes of the community, education staff and children. Furthermore, the specific needs of children with disabilities will be addressed to support their access and retention in mainstream schools, through the provision of assistive devices, equipment and education materials.
