Inclusive Education for All
Inclusive education is a process that involves the transformation of schools and other centers of learning to cater for all children – including boys and girls, students from ethnic and linguistic minorities, rural populations, those affected by HIV and AIDS, and those with disabilities and difficulties in learning and to provide learning opportunities for all youth and adults as well. From a policy perspective, inclusive education means taking a holistic approach to education reform and thus changing the way the educational system tackles exclusion. By contrast, inclusion is about the child’s right to participate and the school’s duty to accept the child.
For the purpose of this project emphasis will be given to children with disabilities and change in attitude and practices will be central to the project desired impact. In light of this, the project therefore would make all effort to see that all children particular those with disabilities have a right to inclusive education. The quality education will improve the learning outcomes of all learners through basic literacy, numeracy, life skills and rights. This will be achieved through effective teaching, social mobilization and community awareness, capacity enhancement of the duty bearers to meet their duties and obligations, promotion of disability friendly seeking learning environment, direct support to EARCs, schools, needy children(with assistive devices) and community participation. The Project will target to reach approximately 2,607 people directly (boys 862 and girls 934, men 354, women 457). Approximately over 12946 people will be reached indirectly by the project.
