Promoting the rights of children living with disabilities in Togo

Children living with disabilities are among the most vulnerable of all Togo's population. Young people with disabilities face not only poverty, but also social isolation and discrimination. Despite the rights guaranteed to them by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and other national law, they are often prohibited from meaningfully participating in their communities. They regularly lack basic health care and are often not allowed to attend school or to find work.

This proposal offers a comprehensive approach to the integration of children living with disabilities into mainstream education. It expands on an already successful programme of providing suitable educational opportunities to primary school-aged children living with disabilities in the Savanes and Kara regions. It will also work to build national capacity and ensure that government fulfills its national and international obligations towards protecting the rights of children living with disabilities.

By combining the capacities of three agencies the United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner (OHCHR), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Health Organization (WHO), and forging effective partnerships with government and non-governmental organizations alike, this programme will see to not only a collaborative and efficient response to the challenge of providing education to children living with disabilities, but also a sustainable one. This holistic human rights-based response, touching on all of health, education and protection, will serve as a model to be replicated in other development strategies across Togo and elsewhere.
