Promoting the Rights of Disabled Children to Quality Education

About 2.21% of India’s total population or 22 million are disabled people, and almost 35% (7.74 million) of them are children (0-19 years)1 who are in need of opportunities for their holistic development. The Right to Quality Education for Children with Disabilities (CWD) has been presented in India’s multiple laws and legal intentions, including in the historic Right to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act 2009 which guarantees to all children from 6 to 14 years, including CWDS, the right to quality education with equity. A national inclusive education curriculum was developed in 2013.
The project will provide a technical assistance at the national and state levels in two areas: a) facilitate the establishment of a coordination mechanism - the Inter-Agency Working Group (IAWG) on the Right to Quality Education for CWD with developing common strategy and national roadmap towards promotion, protection and ensuring the full and equal enjoyment by CWD their rights to quality education, and to respect for their inherent dignity; and b) support to the state-specific adaptation of the inclusive curriculum and its roll out by organizing orientation workshops for all the stakeholders; development of training material and advocacy manual.
Capacities of the national and state level agencies will be developed. Exchange forum will be organized inviting all stakeholders (including representative organizations of persons with disabilities) and bringing out a strategy paper with recommendations (roadmap) for taking forward the initiatives for quality education for CWD across the entire country.
